Recent studies have proposed answers to this crucial question by investigating 'memorial reconstruction' and co -authorship, yet significantly they have not yet considered properly the many formal and stylistic synergies, interchanges and reciprocities between oral/ memorial and authorial composition, and the extent to which these factors are traceable in the surviving playtexts of the period. It is precisely these synergies that this book investigates, making this site of interaction between actorly and authorial input its primary focus. Petersen proposes new quantitative methodologies for approaching form and style in Shakespearean texts. The book's main case studies are Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and Titus Andronicus - plays drawn from the middle of Shakespeare's working career"-- |cProvided by publisher. 590 Gift of the Estate of Norman Wilkinson. 600 10 Shakespeare, William,|d1564-1616|xCriticism, Textual. 600 10 Shakespeare, William,|d1564-1616|xAuthorship |xCollaboration. 650 0 Playwriting|xHistory|y16th century. 650 0 Playwriting|xHistory|y17th century. 650 0 Transmission of texts|zEngland|xHistory|y16th century. 650 0 Transmission of texts|zEngland|xHistory|y17th century. 650 0 English drama|yEarly modern and Elizabethan, 1500-1600 |xCriticism, Textual. 650 0 English drama|y17th century|xCriticism, Textual. 856 41 |u 2010014633-t.html|zview table of contents
