Subject: 18.0703 Most Significant Academic Books on Shakespeare
Comment:	Re: SHK 18.0703 Most Significant Academic Books on Shakespeare

I've been holding off to avoid repetition. For a while it looked like 
all of the books I hold in highest regard would make it in the first few 
posts, but as the thread dies out, I'd like to add a few great academic 
books (one or two of which may already have been mentioned):

. Harry Berger (1997): _Making Trifles of Terrors: Redistributing 
Complicities in Shakespeare._
. Leah Marcus (1996): _Unediting the Renaissance: Shakespeare, Marlowe, 
Milton._
. Louis Montrose (1996): _The Purpose of Playing: Shakespeare and the 
Cultural Politics of Playing._
. Patricia Parker (1996): _Shakespeare from the Margins: Language, 
Culture, Context._
. James Shapiro (2005): _A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare: 1599._

Best,
Scott Oldenburg
