Profiling Shakespeare by Marjorie Garber

Book Description

The title of this collection, Profiling Shakespeare, is meant strongly in its double sense. These essays show the outline of a Shakespeare rather different from the man sought by biographers from his time to our own. They also show the effects, the ephemera, the clues and cues, welcome and unwelcome, out of which Shakespeare's admirers and dedicated scholars have pieced together a vision of the playwright, whether as sage, psychologist, lover, theatrical entrepreneur, or moral authority. This collection brings together classic pieces, hard-to-find chapters, and two new essays. Here, Garber has produced a book at once serious and highly readable, ranging broadly across time periods (early modern to postmodern) and touching upon both high and popular culture. Contents: Preface 1. Shakespeare's Ghost Writers 2. Hamlet: Giving Up the Ghost 3. Macbeth: The Male Medusa 4. Shakespeare as Fetish 5. Character Assassination 6. Out of Joint 7. Roman Numerals 8. Second-Best Bed 9. Shakespeare's Dogs 10. Shakespeare's Laundry List 11. Shakespeare's Faces 12. MacGuffin Shakespeare 13. Fatal Cleopatra 14. What Did Shakespeare Invent? 15. Bartlett's Familiar Shakespeare

Shakespeare's Ghost Writers by Marjorie Garber Shakespeare's Ghost Writers, Paperback (March 2010)

Presents an examination of the authorship controversy surrounding Shakespeare: the claim made repeatedly that the plays were ghost written. This title asks what is at stake in the imputation that 'Shakespeare' did not write the plays, and shows that the plays themselves both thematize and theorize that controversy.

Patronizing the Arts by Marjorie Garber Patronizing the Arts, Hardback (July 2008)

What is the role of the arts in American culture? Is art an essential element? If so, how should we support it? This book describes the history of patronage, and shows how patronage has elevated and damaged the arts in modern culture, and argues for the university as a serious patron of the arts.
