The politics of unease in the plays of John Fletcher by Gordon McMullan ( )
11 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Fletcher (1579-1625) was Shakespeare's successor as chief playwright for the King's Company and wrote or collaborated on fifty-four plays. Yet although his work forms the single most substantial canon of drama to come down from the English Renaissance, it has remained largely unexplored by critics. Arguing that knowledge of Fletcher's oeuvre is essential to an understanding of Renaissance drama as a whole, this groundbreaking study analyses Fletcher's unique response to the particular cultural and political conditions of Jacobean theater. Fletcher wrote ironic, tragicomic plays premised upon complex cultural matrices that create unease in audience and critic alike. In examining the sources of this unease, Gordon McMullan rejects centralizing approaches and focuses instead on the social and political tensions - between London and the country, England and the colonies, women and men - that motivate the plays. In so doing, he seeks appropriate ways of reading a group of plays which, by way of their politics, generic complexities, and collaborative mode of production, appear to defy current critical practices
King Henry VIII (All is true) by William Shakespeare ( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first fully annotated and comprehensive modern-spelling edition of King Henry VIII - known in its early performances as All is True - for over ten years. It makes full use of current scholarship on the dating, authorship, printing, and sources of the play, as well as critical interpretations, and includes an up-to-date survey of the play in performance. It is the first edition to make frequent use of Cavendish's life of Cardinal Wolsey, which seems likely to have influenced certain aspects of the play, as well as the other recognized sources in Holinshed, Hall, and Foxe." "On authorship, the editor concludes that Shakespeare and his younger colleague John Fletcher worked on the script together but that Shakespeare was probably the guiding spirit, as well as the principal author of several major scenes." "A fully detailed commentary and a selective collation of major variant readings appear immediately beneath the text. Special attention has been given to the frequent allusion to scripture and proverb lore. An index to all words glossed and authorities cited appears at the end of the volume."--BOOK JACKET
Shakespeare and the idea of late writing : authorship in the proximity of death by Gordon McMullan ( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What do we mean when we speak of the 'late style' of a given writer, artist or composer? And what exactly, then, do we mean when we speak of 'Shakespeare's late style' or Shakespeare's late work? In Shakespeare and the Idea of Late Writing, Gordon McMullan argues that - far from being a natural phenomenon common to a handful of geniuses who, in their last few years, enter a rejuvenated period of serene, abstract or (sometimes) difficult, resistant creativity, a transition typically attributed to old age or to the proximity of death - late style is in fact a critical construct. Taking Shakespeare as his exemplar, he maps the development of the idea of the 'late plays' from the later eighteenth century to the present, noting not only the mismatch between what he call the 'discourse of lateness' and the actual conditions of production and of authorship in early modern theatre but also the generativity of this discourse for subsequent projections of creative selfhood. This book offers the first full critique of the idea of late style and will therefore be of interest not only to literature specialists but also to art historians and musicologists and to anyone curious about the relationship of creativity to old age and to death."--BOOK JACKET
Renaissance configurations : voices/bodies/spaces, 1580-1690 by Gordon Mcmullan ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renaissance Configurations is a ground-breaking collection of essays on the structures and strategies of Early Modern culture - as embodied in issues of gender, sexuality and politics - by a group of critics from the new generation of Early Modern specialists. The essays focus on the relations of public and private, of verbal and spatial, of textual and material, reading and re-reading texts, both canonical and non-canonical, with a textual and historical rigour often considered lacking in work with theoretical premises. The collection as a whole offers a clear sense of the direction to be tak

Women making Shakespeare : text, reception, performance by Gordon McMullan ( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work presents a series of 20-25 short essays that draw on a variety of resources, including interviews with directors, actors, and other performance practitioners, to explore the place (or constitutive absence) of women in the Shakespearean text and in the history of Shakespearean reception, the many ways women, working individually or in communities, have shaped and transformed the reception, performance, and teaching of Shakespeare from the 17th century to the present. The book highlights the essential role Shakespeare's texts have played in the historical development of feminism. Rather than a traditional collection of essays, it brings together materials from diverse resources and uses diverse research methods to create something new and transformative. Among the many women's interactions with Shakespeare to be considered are acting (whether on the professional stage, in film, on lecture tours, or in staged readings), editing, teaching, academic writing, and recycling through adaptations and appropriations (film, novels, poems, plays, visual arts) -- Provided by publisher
