Blogging Shakespeare

REVIEWED BY: Marguerite Zelle



WEB ADDRESS: http://bloggingshakespeare.com/

BLOG DESCRIPTION: Blogging Shakespeare has many authors. Here's just the top one of the list: Paul Edmondson is General Editor of Blogging Shakespeare. He is Head of Research and Knowledge and Director of the Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival for The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. He is a trustee of The Rose Theatre Trust, co-series editor for Palgrave Macmillan’s Shakespeare Handbooks, and co-supervisory editor of the Penguin Shakespeare (for which he has contributed to several introductions).

He is Chair of The Hosking Houses Trust. His publications include: Twelfth Night: A Guide to the Text and Its Theatrical Life, and (co-authored with Stanley Wells), Shakespeare’s Sonnets and Coffee with Shakespeare. He has published on Shakespeare’s influence on the Brontës (Brontë Studies and Shakespeare Survey). He contributed an essay on the poetry of Marlowe and Shakespeare for The Cambridge History of English Poetry (May, 2010), and has two essays on Harriet Walter appearing in Actors’ Shakespeare (Routledge, 2011) and The Cambridge World Shakespeare Encyclopedia. He wrote the script for The Shakespeare Centre’s ‘Life, Love, and Legacy’ exhibition and co-curated ‘Shakespeare Found: A Life Portrait’. He took another B.A. in Applied Theological Studies (University of Birmingham), 2007-2010. He is a priest in The Church of England.

MY REVIEW: An excellent blog of the Bard, covering his plays and life in all its facets. The authors all write well and cover the plays and stuff in detail.
