Comment:	Re: SHK 18.0667 Most Significant Academic Books on Shakespeare

Dear Bob,

These books, post 1945 have been especially stimulating and provocative. 
  If you would like any further brief reasons, let me know-but that will 
have to wait until after Nov 7 when we return from the Blackfriars 
conference.

Wright, George T.,   Shakespeare's Metrical Art
Rossiter, A.P. Angel with Horns.
Hunter, G.K.,   Dramatic Identities and Cultural Tradition
Barber, C.L.,  Shakespeare's Festive Comedy
David, Richard,  Shakespeare in the Theatre
Muir, Kenneth,  The Singularity of Shakespeare
Rabkin, Norman,   Shakespeare and the Common Understanding
Honigmann, E.A., The Stability of Shakespeare
Mahood, M.M.,  Bit-Parts in Shakespeare's Plays  {and Shakespeare's 
Word-Play if date permits}
Patterson, Annabel, Shakespeare and the Popular Voice
Shapiro, James, 1599
Bate, Jonathan, Shakespeare and Ovid
Gombrich, Ernst, Art and Illusion [for influence though of course, indirect]

If collections that do not specialize can be included:
The Cambridge Library  -esp Vol 3
Habicht, et al,   Images of Shakespeare  [and other proceedings of World 
Congresses]

Cheers,
Herb
