Subject: Reading List Request
I purchase my copies of Shakespeare Survey when I renew my Shakespeare
Association of America membership dues. The upside is that I save a
considerable amount of money from the normal rate; the downside is that
my copies arrive almost a year after Cambridge University Press makes
Long and short, I don't yet have my copy of Volume 58 yet.
I spent some time this morning with the University of Maryland System's
database, ResearchPort, trying to locate an electronic copy of Ewan
Fernie's essay "Shakespeare and the Prospect of Presentism" from
Shakespeare Survey 58 (2005): 169-84. I was not successful.
Is there someone who could email this essay in Adobe pdf format? Most
scholarly journals that are available in electronic format use Adobe as
the de facto standard. If the essay is not available in pdf format,
could someone using Adobe Standard or Professional or another
third-party software scan the article into pdf format for me? And if no
one can scan the essay for me, could someone send me a photocopy so that
I can scan the essay myself.
In a like manner, if members who would like to participate in the
upcoming Roundtable/Colloquium whatever and do not have access to one or
more of the recommended readings, please email me.
One more thing, while I was trying to find an electronic copy of
Fernie's essay, I went to the Shakespeare Survey homepage
and discovered that Cambridge UP has reprinted an almost complete run of
Shakespeare Survey volumes from 1 to 52 and are placing these for sale
to libraries that would like to have a complete series. I write
libraries because I imagine only libraries can afford to purchase the
paperback collection. Because I was in a hurry, I did not find the cost
so I am imagining base on what I did see about getting a $250 discount
on the series or was that 250 pounds? Details can be found here:

Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production.
Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in
English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare
criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of
plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual
and critical studies, and of the year's major British performances. The
books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and
production photographs. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen
interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have
characterised the journal from the start. Most volumes of Survey have
long been out of print. Now numbers 1-52 are being reissued in
paperback, available separately and as a set.
* The volumes have never appeared in paperback before * Will enable
libraries and scholars to complete their sets and to subscribe cheaply
to the entire series * Hardback volumes of select later volumes are
still in print.
