Recent work in Shakespeare studies has brought to the forefront a variety of ways in which the collaborative nature of Shakespearean drama can be investigated: collaborative performance (Shakespeare and his fellow actors); collaborative writing (Shakespeare and his co-authors); collaborative textual production (Shakespeare and his transcribers and printers). What this leaves unaccounted for is the form of collaboration that affects more than any other our modern reading experience of Shakespeare's plays: what we read as Shakespeare now always comes to us in the form of a collaborative enterprise - and is decisively shaped by the nature of the collaboration - between Shakespeare and his modern editors. Contrary to much recent criticism, this book suggests that modern textual mediators have a positive rather than negative role: they are not simply 'pimps of discourse' or cultural tyrants whose oppressive interventions we need to 'unedit' but collaborators who can decisively shape and enable our response to Shakespeare's plays. Erne argues that any reader of Shakespeare, scholar, student, or general reader, approaches Shakespeare through modern editions that have an endlessly complicated and fascinating relationship to what Shakespeare may actually have intended and written, that modern editors determine what that relationship is, and that it is generally a very good thing that they do so.

This Festschrift comprises a series of papers written in honour of the philologist Andreas Fischer, on the occasion of his sixty-fifth birthday. As in Andreas Fischers own research, the main focus of the volume is on words: words in modern varieties, such as emergent conjunctions in Australian, American and British English, words in their cultural and historical context, such as English keywords in Old Norse literature, and words in a diachronic perspective, such as Romance suffixation in the history of English. Many contributions are anchored in the philological tradition that has informed much of Andreas Fischers own scholarship, such as the study of verbal duelling in the late thirteenth-century romance Kyng Alisaunder. Others examine the construction ofdiscourses, such as those surrounding the Black Death. The volume, with its innovative studies,offers fascinating insights into words, discourses,and their contexts, both past and present.

This book is devoted to the description of typical trends in development, formation and the present state of English Author Lexicography, the roots of which go back to concordances to the Bible and glossaries of the complete works of Chaucer (xvi c.). Part I, “Linguistic Dictionaries to English Writers,” presents lexicographic analysis of old and new concordances, indices, glossaries and lexicons of famous English writers with special reference to Chaucer, Milton, Shakespeare, and Dickens. It presents a modern scene of author glossaries for unfamiliar words, terms and other groups of writers’ vocabulary (e.g. Shakespeare’s insults and his erotic language). The reader is offered a detailed review of author concordances, glossaries and lexicons on the Internet, along with criticism of printed dictionaries. Part II, “Encyclopedic Reference Works to English Writers,” deals with English author encyclopedic reference books, i.e. encyclopedias, guides and companions; dictionaries of characters and place names; quotations and proverbs, and Internet encyclopedic resources. The book also provides a comprehensive list of references on author lexicography and an Index of Dictionaries to the English Writers (xvi–xxi cc.), including 300 titles of linguistic and encyclopedic dictionaries, which is a reliable user guide in the world of English author lexicography.

The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare is the most comprehensive reference work available on Shakespeare's life, times, works, and his 400-year global legacy. In addition to the authoritative A-Z entries, it includes nearly 100 illustrations, a chronology, a guide to further reading, a thematic contents list, and special feature entries on each of Shakespeare's works. Tying in with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this much-loved Companion has been revised and updated, reflecting developments and discoveries made in recent years and to cover the performance, interpretation, and the influence of Shakespeare's works up to the present day. First published in 2001, the online edition was revised in 2011, with updates to over 200 entries plus 16 new entries. These online updates appear in print for the first time in this second edition, along with a further 35,000 new and revised words. These include more than 80 new entries, ranging from important performers, directors, and scholars (such as Lucy Bailey, Samuel West, and Alfredo Michel Modenessi), to topics as diverse as Shakespeare in the digital age and the ubiquity of plants in Shakespeare's works, to the interpretation of Shakespeare globally, from Finland to Iraq. To make information on Shakespeare's major works easier to find, the feature entries have been grouped and placed in a centre section (fully cross-referenced from the A-Z). The thematic listing of entries - described in the press as 'an invaluable panorama of the contents' - has been updated to include all of the new entries. This edition contains a preface written by much-lauded Shakespearian actor Simon Russell Beale. Full of both entertaining trivia and scholarly detail, this authoritative Companion will delight the browser and reward students, academics, as well as anyone wanting to know more about Shakespeare.

The English Language: A Linguistic History is designed as a core text for classes in the history of the English language, offered through the English or linguistics department. Beginning with a discussion of how language changes, the book examines historical change in English from its Indo-European past through its major periods (Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English, and Modern English). This is an introductory text: it does not assume any background in language or linguistics. Self-testing exercises are integrated throughout the text, and students are required to learn to use the International Phonetic Alphabet. Additional pedagogical material, such as lists of related books and Web sites, are also integrated.

William Shakespeare: Das Wintermärchen (The Winter’s Tale) Die tragikomische Romanze in fünf Akten in Versen und Prosa entstand 1610/11 und wurde 1611 in London uraufgeführt. Der Erstdruck erfolgte 1623 in der sogenannten First Folio Ausgabe. König Leontes glaubt, seine Frau Hermione habe ihn mit Polixenes, dem König von Böhmen, betrogen. Leontes lässt daraufhin seine Tochter als vermeintlichen Bastard aussetzen und Hermione den Prozess wegen Hochverrats machen. Auch als das Orakel von Delphi ihm sagt, Hermione sei unschuldig, hält Leontes an seinem hasserfüllten Wahn fest. Erst viel zu spät erkennt er seinen tragischen Irrtum. Die deutsche Erstaufführung erfolgte 1859 in Weimar. Die in dieser Ausgabe zugrunde gelegte Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck und wurde erstmals 1832 bei Georg Andreas Reimer in Berlin gedruckt. Zur Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung: August Wilhelm Schlegel begann 1796 eine Gesamtübersetzung der Werke William Shakespeares, musste das Vorhaben jedoch 1810 nach 14 Dramen abbrechen. 1825 setzte Ludwig Tieck das Projekt unter Mitarbeit seiner ältesten Tochter Dorothea und Wolf Graf von Baudissins fort. 1833 schloss Dorothea Tieck mit der deutschen Fassung von Macbeth die bis heute als maßgeblich geltende sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung ab. »Ich empfehle dringend die sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki Erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt von Christoph Martin Wieland (1766). Die vorliegende Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck. Erstdruck in: Shakspeare's dramatische Werke. Übersetzt von August Wilhelm Schlegel. Ergänzt und erläutert von Ludwig Tieck, Bd. 8, Berlin (Georg Andreas Reimer) 1832. Vollständige Neuausgabe. Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2015.

Typisch Bill Bryson: eine humorvolle und leicht verständliche Einführung in Shakespeares Leben, seine Werke und seine Zeit Mensch oder Mythos – wer war William Shakespeare wirklich, der geistige Vater von Romeo und Julia, von Hamlet und Macbeth?

Bill Bryson schließt die Wissenslücken um den bekanntesten und rätselhaftesten Autor der Welt. Dabei lädt er seine Leser ein zu einer vergnüglichen Reise durch das elisabethanische England. Ein echter Bill Bryson: eloquent, klug und mit einem Augenzwinkern geschrieben.
