The Hare, a peer-reviewed, on-line academic journal

About The Hare


The Hare is a peer-reviewed, on-line academic journal published three times yearly. The journal publishes short essays on the dramatic, poetic, and prose works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. The journal also publishes academic book reviews, and provides a public forum for open exchange between scholars in the field.


The Hare seeks sharply focused, stylistically adventurous, formally innovative analytical writing and encourages the submission of: startling paradoxes, out-takes, first gestures, unthought-of excursions, false starts, wild speculations, brave experiments, and other occasional pieces or controversiae dealing with familiar and unfamiliar topics and texts in early modern literature. The journal asserts copyright over all published material but will freely grant permission for future reproduction and publication, subject to due acknowledgment to The Hare.

The Hare solicits reviews of old books. The Editors believe that scholarship and pedagogy benefit from the continuous reappraisal of foundational or seminal critical works—and also the reconsideration of works whose importance has been forgotten, or heretofore overlooked. The definition of “old” will remain flexible, and contributors are encouraged to interpret it creatively. Reviews of recently published books will be considered if they are discussed in conjunction with old books.


The Hare seeks to foster collegial dialogue around current scholarly work. Readers are encouraged to respond to content in The Hare, or to call attention to matters that might be of interest to other readers, in the form of publishable letters.

Another journal?


Submitted by Paul Menzer on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 11:11pm


There is no need for this journal. It is the product of desire: perhaps most particularly the desire to foster, in print, something like the collegial dialogue that occurs on the margins of—just before and just after (or long after)—the work in other academic journals, scholarly monographs, conferences.


At its most ambitious, The Hare seeks to bend the horizon of possibilities for what kinds of writing we use to engage our discipline and what kinds of materials we deem appropriate for our consideration. We hope to make available short, sharp, stylish, creative engagements with and through all topics of interest to scholars of early modern literature.


The path to this inaugural issue has been a long and winding one. We are grateful to many colleagues for their interest and encouragement along the way, and most especially to our superb editorial board and first-issue contributors for putting their names behind this project. Thanks to Mary Baldwin College for financial support. Our webmaster Robert Matney is the sole reason you are able to read this journal online, and we are grateful for his technical skill and remarkable patience. Phoebe West provided the fine illustrations, including our logo.


The Hare will appear three times yearly. Please read it and tell your colleagues and students about it. Please contribute. And please send us suggestions for how we might improve it or develop its flexible format in yet unthought of ways. You can contact us through this website, at our respective institutions, or at thehareonline [at] gmail [dot] com.
