English civic pageantry, 1558-1642 by David M Bergeron( Book )

21 editions published between 1971 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revised version of English Civic Pageantry looks anew at the variety and vitality of English civic pageants from the beginning of Elizabeth's reign to the closing of the theaters in 1652, focusing on royal entries, progress pageants, and Lord Mayor's Shows. Bergeron argues that civic pageants partake of the burgeoning theater world and indeed contribute significantly to it. In a world rich in metaphorical possibilities, civic pageants with their spectacle and speech captured attention on noblemen's estates and in the streets of London. In the new Introduction, Bergeron evaluates where pageantry studies have been and where they might go, underscoring areas ripe for additional investigation and analysis." "This revised book seeks to call renewed and vigorous attention to this sometimes marginalized dramatic form by insisting that civic pageants constituted a major part of cultural and theatrical life in early modern England. Bergeron's fresh look at this material seeks to recover and analyze the world of English civic pageantry, opening its richness for inspection and wonder."--Jacket

Reading and writing in Shakespeare( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of essays explores reading and writing in Shakespeare and his culture. Shakespeare as a worker and writer straddled a margin between an oral, customary world and a literate world of specializing professionals in a way that no subsequent writer ever could. With the 1623 Folio edition, Shakespeare completed the transformation from an active dramatist to an author of a book, collected by his friends and now available to readers
King James & letters of homoerotic desire by David M Bergeron( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can we know of the private lives of early British sovereigns? Through the unusually large number of letters that survive from King James VI of Scotland/James I of England (1566-1625), we can know a great deal. Using original letters, primarily from the British Library and the National Library of Scotland, David Bergeron creatively argues that James' correspondence with certain men in his court constitutes a gospel of homoerotic desire. Bergeron grounds his study on an examination of the tradition of letter writing during the Renaissance and draws a connection between homosexual desire and letter writing during that historical period ... King James and Letters of Homoerotic Desire presents a modern-spelling edition of seventy-five letters exchanged between Buckingham and James. Across the centuries, commentators have condemned the letters as indecent or repulsive. Bergeron argues that on the contrary they reveal an inward desire of king and subject in a mutual exchange of love"--Jacket
Textual patronage in English drama, 1570-1640 by David M Bergeron( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to offer a systematic analysis of prefatory material in English dramatic texts, compelling literary scholars, cultural historians and historians of the book to take seriously the intersection of patronage, book production, and playwrights' textual frames. As Bergeron persuasively argues, we cannot fully comprehend the practice of Renaissance patronage without understanding these documents from England's richest theater period."--Jacket

Practicing Renaissance scholarship : plays and pageants, patrons and politics by David M Bergeron( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David M. Bergeron, one of the most renowned specialists in the world on Renaissance English civic pageantry, masques, entertainments and drama, now gives us Practicing Renaissance Scholarship. This book is a collection of 11 essays that focus on the plight of the humanist scholar at the beginning of the new century, arguing for an attitude of "interrogative metonymy"--That is, a kind of collegiality among scholars with an insistent questioning of transmitted knowledge. From original archival research, to analyzing what centuries of thinkers have written, to exposing reductive ideology, the essays revolve around the twin poles of evidence and interpretation."--Jacket
