Description - Shakespeare's Webs by Arthur F. Kinney

In this book, renowned Renaissance drama critic Arthur F. Kinney argues that Shakespeare's method of composing plays through networks of meanings can be seen as a harbinger of today's information technology. Drawing upon hypertext and cognitive theory-areas that have for some time promised to take on more importance in the sphere of Shakespeare Studies-as well as the central metaphor of the Routledge collection The Renaissance Computer, Kinney looks in detail at four objects/images in Shakespeare's plays-mirrors, maps, clocks, and books - and explores the ways in which they make up networks of meaning within single plays and across the dramatist's body of work that anticipate in some ways the networks of meaning or "information" now possible in the computer age. Kinney is a well published and respected Shakespearean whose innovative work in this project will be of considerable interest to a large number of students and scholars working in Shakespeare Studies.
