Item description for Textual Shakespeare: Writing and the Word by Graham Holderness...
Reviewing debates in textual theory and practice, this examination concludes that Shakespeare is not a writer but a collection of documents. The argument is presented that modern Shakespeare editions are radical rewritings and that contemporary textual theory opens the way to much more inventive textual activities of reconstruction and translation. This book draws on a wide range of sources, from classical poetry and deconstructionist theory to Anglo-Saxon verse and modern bibliographical scholarship.
