    Description: Physicians, readers and scholars have long been fascinated by Shakespeare's medical language and the presence of healers, wise women and surgeons in his work. This dictionary includes entries about ailments, medical concepts, cures and, taking into account recent critical work on the early modern body, bodily functions, parts, and pathologies in Shakespeare. Shakespeare's Medical Language will provide a comprehensive guide for those needing to understand specific references in the plays, in particular, archaic diagnoses or therapies ('choleric', 'tub-fast') and words that have changed their meanings ('phlegmatic', 'urinal'); those who want to learn more about early modern medical concepts ('elements', 'humors'); and those who might have questions about the embodied experience of living in Shakespeare's England. Entries reveal what terms and concepts might mean in the context of Shakespeare's plays, and the significance that a particular disease, body part or function has in individual plays and the Shakespearean corpus at large.

Description: The true biography of Shakespeare is in the plays. The great English tragedies were all written in the first decade of the seventeenth century. They are often in language that is difficult to us, and must have been hard even for contemporaries. How and why did Shakespeare's language develop as it did.

Reading Shakespeares Dramatic Language


Category: Books
Description: This accessible and interdisciplinary volume addresses a fundamental need in current education in language, literature and drama. Many of today's students lack the grammatical and linguistic skills to enable them to study Shakespearean and other Renaissance texts as closely as their courses require. This practical guide will help them to understand and use the structures and strategies of written and dramatic language. Eleven short essays on aspects of literary criticism and performance by an eminent team of contributors are followed by a more detailed exploration of the history of language use, grammar and spelling, plus a glossary of terms offering definitions, contexts and examples. Together these provide an informed and engaging historical understanding of dramatic language in the early modern period.

Experimental Shakespeare


Category: Books
Description: Shakespeares playwrighting and possibly his directing reflect a consistent intent to explore principles that, in his days, were perceived as foreign to the dramatic idiom. This is evident within the framework of contemporary theatre theories at the time. Eli Roziks novel reading of the play-scripts provides the classical and synchronic theoretical background required to capture Shakespeares innovative approach, and is a major contribution to the history of European theatre practice and theory. All of Roziks earlier publications on theatre practice and theory engage with Shakespeares play-scripts by example and these insights are re-integrated herein. The result is a new and challenging concept of Shakespeares contribution to the art of theatre, and to a viewpoint of the Bard as an unprecedented experimental playwright and innovator in all that concerns the mastery of theatre art and, especially, the expansion of its means of expression. The central concern of this study is not the experimentation by modernist and postmodernist directors in producing Shakespeares play-scripts for diachronic audiences, but with the exploration, experimentation and innovation embodied in the Bards practice itself, as reflected in the wide artistic and historical range of the play-scripts. Drama and theatre scholarship, with its concomitant comprehensive method of analysis, is indispensable in revealing the nature of the Bards playwrighting, his historical explorations and theatrical innovations. Roziks earlier works on the nature of theatre, fictional creativity and origin, best place him to interpret Shakespeares works against their synchronic theoretical background in the light that experimentation lay at the heart of Shakespeares creativity.
