Subject: 	Shakespeare Studies XXXIV and Medieval and Renaissance Drama 19


Volume XXXIV continues the journal's series of Forums, in which a group 
of scholars address an issue of importance to early modern studies. The 
Forum in this issue is entitled ''Is There Character After Theory?'' 
Organized and introduced by Raphael Falco, it features Tom Bishop, 
Dympna Callaghan, Jonathan Crewe, Christy Desmet, Elizabeth Fowler, and 
Alan Sinfield. Volume XXXIV also includes three essays: Roger Chartier 
on ''Jack Cade, the Skin of a Dead Lamb, and the Hatred for Writing''; 
Julian Yates on ''Stealing Shakespeare's Oranges''; and Anston Bosman on 
'''Best Play with Mardian': Eunuch and Blackamoor and Imperial 
Culturegram.'' In addition to these articles, the journal includes 
substantial reviews of significant publications dealing with these 
issues, as well as theoretical studies relevant to scholars of early 
modern culture.

Susan Zimmerman is Professor of English at Queens College, City 
University of New York. Garrett Sullivan is Associate Professor of

Volume 19
Edited by S. P. CERASANO

Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England is an international volume 
published annually. Each volume contains essays and studies by critics 
and cultural historians from both hemispheres as well as substantial 
reviews of books and essays dealing with medieval and early modern 
English drama before 1642. Volume 19 reflects a variety of scholarly 
interests. The collection opens with two essays-each exploring different 
aspects of John Webster and James Shirley-that further our understanding 
of attribution studies. One essay-on the ownership of the Bell Savage 
Playhouse-showcases MaRDiE's ongoing interest in early playhouses, while 
another-on Marston's Entertainment at Ashby-addresses performance 
history. Two further essays discuss issues related to stage costuming. 
Issues of actual identity are raised in an essay concerning John Lyly's 
biography, while two other authors probe the complex connections between 
drama and economics. William Rowley's All Lost by Lust becomes the 
centerpiece for a reassessment of rape tragedy.

S. P. Cerasano is the Edgar W. B. Fairchild Professor of Literature at 
Colgate University.
