Subject: Not the Year's Work in English Studies
From 2000 to 2016 I wrote the “Shakespeare: Editions and Textual Studies” annual review for the Year’s Work in English Studies published by Oxford University Press. In 2016 I was asked to stand down and so gave up the review, but I continue to attempt to read and evaluate everything published in this field. Since the discipline of formally reviewing scholarship is the best way to make sense of it, I decided to continue writing an annual review and to self-publish it on my website. I am grateful to Ed Pechter for serving as my editor for this new review, saving me from dozens of infelicities and improving the sense in many places. I would be interested to hear from any readers who find this review useful.
The review is called Not the Year’s Work in English Studies and it
The most recent review is for work published in 2015. My YWES reviews
of scholarship published in previous years are available at:
