Shakespeare Survey is now sixty years old. Its volumes provide a rich and continuing history of Shakespeare studies, exploring every part of Shakespeare's writing and writing about Shakespeare, detailing the contexts, performances, meanings and possibilities of his works. Since its inception, the series has ensured that each volume contains its own index of names and, where appropriate, individual titles, including references to each of Shakespeare's plays and poems. Every ten years an index has been added which amalgamates the previous ten. This single-volume cumulative index enables the reader to find references across six decades without having to consult six separate indexes.

Editorial Reviews

"Not many people might go into raptures at the publication of an index, but this is a different matter. This cumulative index of Shakespeare Survey - itself the size of a regular issue of the most authoritative European Shakespeare journal - is an absolute treat. Running the indexes of 60 volumes together in a single volume, it tells you, at a glance, where to turn for all that has been said on Shake­speare and Machiavelli, Sir Thomas More, the fellow playwrights, as well as the achievements of colleagues in the field. It is indispensable, and if you still think that the digital age has made such reference works redundant, con­sult an entry like "E. M. W. Tillyard" and you will find that no computer search engine to date is able to give you such a detailed account of the critic in question." -Ton Hoenselaars and Paul Franssen, THE STAPLE OF NEWS - XVII
