Editing Shakespeare


This course engages the theoretical and practical problems in Shakespearean editorial scholarship and consequently, in how Shakespeare's canonicity has been transmitted, received, interpreted, and transformed by generations of literary critics. Our historical survey of seminal editions (and their theoretical underpinnings) begins with F1 (1623) and ends with the emergence of XML, and problems in the architecting of schema. Editorial standards as defined by the MLA as well as the TEI-C will be applied to these seminal editions with the intention of illuminating hermeneutical controversies by means of concrete examples.
