2Title:  Shakespeare in three dimensions: the dramaturgy of Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet   
 Creator:  Blacker, Robert | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Fund | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Library (University of Pennsylvania) 
 Notes:  "In Shakespearean Dramaturgy, Robert Blacker asks us to forget what we think we know about Shakespeare; his work should be rediscovered on our feet, in the rehearsal room and in performance. Staging Shakespeare today is a process of stripping away 400 years of obfuscation between us and the social and personal observations that lie at the core of his plays. While customs and theatre have changed in that time, people themselves haven't. This book explores the universal themes of power and love in Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth, mining both the texts and a lifetime of productions to share the invaluable discoveries that these experiences throw up." "Routledge Focus"--Front cover. Includes bibliographical references and index.

3Title:  Shakespeare and the soliloquy in early modern English drama   
 Creator:  Cousins, A. D., 1950- | Derrin, Daniel, 1980- | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Fund | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Library (University of Pennsylvania) 
 Notes:  "Encompassing nearly a century of drama, this is the first book to provide students and scholars with a truly comprehensive guide to the early modern soliloquy. Considering the antecedents of the form in Roman, late fifteenth and mid-sixteenth century drama, it analyses its diversity, its theatrical functions and its socio-political significances. Containing detailed case-studies of the plays of Marlowe, Shakespeare, Jonson, Ford, Middleton and Davenant, this collection will equip students in their own close-readings of texts, providing them with an indepth knowledge of the verbal and dramaturgical aspects of the form. Informed by rich theatrical and historical understanding, the essays reveal the larger connections between Shakespeare's use of the soliloquy and its deployment by his fellow dramatists"-- "Beginning with an account of paradigmatic precedents in Roman drama (given its prominence in early modern English education), the book then proceeds to discuss the soliloquy's roles in English plays from the later fifteenth to the mid-sixteenth centuries. After those preparatory chapters, the book moves on to study the soliloquy from Marlowe to Davenant. The chapters on playwrights trace variations in theatrical conceptualizing of the soliloquy and in its use to represent individuated characterization (or, versions of selfhood). They also trace how, as indicated by a range of soliloquies, authors revisit and rewrite one another's texts in order to suggest authorial identity (for instance, how Davenant reworks Shakespeare)"-- Includes bibliographical references and index.
