From Our Editors

Anyone studying the works of William Shakespeare realizes how groundbreaking it is. Hundreds of years later, we continue to study and debate his work. In Shakespeare Without Women, Dympna Callaghan examines the role of female impersonation in Shakespeare’s work, as well as the connection between dramatic and political representation. Callaghan focuses on such specific topics as: the exclusion of the female body from Twelfth Night and racial impersonation in Othello. This book is sure to spark interesting observations and arguments.  

Editorial Reviews

I have personally purchased and studied every one of the new Accents on Shakespeare volumes in the new series edited by Terence Hawkes and repeatedly turn to them as resources for my own research and teaching. My students - graduate and undergraduate alike - find them invaluable, as I do. They are remarkably comprehensive, timely, and informative, and essential way to keep current with the fundamental ideas in Shakespearean criticism.
