Hamner and Warburton Editions

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.1859  Friday, 8 October 2004

Subject:        Hamner and Warburton Editions

At the request of a colleague, I am forwarding this question to the
list. Editions of Shakespeare are way outside my area of expertise.
Please feel free to respond offllist at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Thanks.

The reference I'm trying to fill out is to "Hammer and Warburton" and
their (separate) editions of Shakespeare, which appeared in the 1740s --

that would be Sir Thomas Hanmer and Rev. William Warburton.

I'm trying to get a sense of the extent to which these editions altered
Shakespeare's words; in the source I'm annotating, Radcliffe's essay on
the supernatural in poetry, reference is made to how those editions
change the wording of a phrase in _Hamlet_ (from "good even" to "good
morning"). I'm curious to know just how extensive were the changes made
by these editors-- just a phrase here and there, in the name of
producing a "correct" text, or were the revisions more substantial?

And Now for Something Completely Different

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.1858  Friday, 8 October 2004

From:           D Bloom <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Subject:        And Now for Something Completely Different

Pursuant to an admittedly private matter, does anyone on the list have
information on the process of rehearsing Shakespeare by professional
companies?

I would be interested in personal anecdotes as well as technical data
about rehearsal schedules and procedures.

I don't need information about college or community productions: I've
been there. And what I'm looking for is not likely to be in the
reminiscences of famous actors.

Perhaps the best way to put it is this: how does professional production
of Shakespeare differ from amateur?

Cheers
Don
