Subject: Clarification Regarding Reading List
It has been called to my attention that my formatting of the Reading
List in yesterday's post was confusing.
Here is the list as it should have read:
Historicism and Presentism
Charnes, Linda. "Introduction: Passing Which Torch?" Hamlet's Heirs:
Shakespeare and the Politics of a New Millennium. Routledge: London and
New York, 2006: 1-12.
Fernie, Ewan. "Shakespeare and the Prospect of Presentism." Shakespeare
Survey 58 (2005): 169-84.
Grady, Hugh. "Shakespeare Studies, 2005: A Situated Overview,"
Shakespeare: A Journal. 1.1-2 (June and December 2005): 102-20. Also
available on-line at
Grady, Hugh and Terrence Hawkes eds. Presentist Shakespeares. Accents on
Shakespeare. London: Routledge, 2007. Introduction (1-5) and perhaps a
sampling of the collected essays to see the diversity of "presentist"
Hawkes, Terence. Shakespeare in the Present. London: Routledge, 2002.
Especially the Introduction.
Rackin, Phyllis. "Misogyny is Everywhere," in Dympna Callaghan (ed.) A
Feminist Companion to Shakespeare. Alden, Massachusetts: Blackwell, 2000.
Again, anyone having difficulty obtaining the essays should contact me.
Finally, I plan to have Professor Grady initiate the discussion in two
weeks or so.
PS: I apologize for the typo in yesterday's post. Hugh Grady is clearly
eminently qualified to conduct a session examining Presentism.
