By James J. Marino

Copyright is in no way the one machine for saying possession of a piece. a few writers, together with playwrights within the early smooth interval, didn't even view print copyright because the most vital in their authorial rights. A wealthy vein of modern scholarship has tested the interplay among royal monopolies, that have been pointed out with later notions of intrinsic authorial possession, and the inner replica registration practices of the English ebook trades. but this discussion was once yet one a part of a nonetheless extra advanced dialog in early sleek England, James J. Marino argues; different customs and different units calls for have been no less than as very important, such a lot strikingly within the workout of the functionality rights of plays.

In Owning William Shakespeare James Marino explores the actors' approach of highbrow estate as whatever essentially assorted from the valuables regimes exercised by means of the London printers or the royal monopolists. targeting Hamlet, The Taming of the Shrew, King Lear, and different works, he demonstrates how Shakespeare's appearing corporation asserted possession of its performs via excessive rewriting mixed with steadily insistent attribution to Shakespeare. The time-honored models of those performs have been created via ongoing revision within the theater, a strategy that didn't unavoidably start with Shakespeare's unique manuscript or finish while he died. An ascription through the corporate of any play to "Shakespeare" didn't suggest that it used to be following a hard and fast, authorial textual content; quite, Marino writes, it exhibits an try to preserve specific regulate over a suite of open-ended, theatrically revised scripts.

Combining theater background, textual experiences, and literary conception, Owning William Shakespeare rethinks either the way in which Shakespeare's performs have been created and how they got here to be often called his. It overturns a century of scholarship geared toward re-creating the playwright's misplaced manuscripts, focusing as a substitute at the approach the performs persevered to reside and develop onstage.
