Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism. Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual and critical studies, and of the year's major British performances. The books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and production photographs. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have characterised the journal from the start. Most volumes of Survey have long been out of print. Backnumbers are gradually being reissued in paperback.

A comparative reference guide to Shakespeare's grammar, based on a complete revision of an extremely elderly but still much-cited volume, Abbott's Shakespearean Grammar, first published in 1869 and still regarded by default as an essential component of Shakespeare research. This volume meets the identified need for an authoritative and systematic grammar of Shakespeare which takes account both of current linguistic developments and of the current state of knowledge about Early Modern English and enable editors and readers both to understand and to contextualise Shakespeare's use and manipulation of language, i.e. to locate it in the context of other writings in Early Modern English.'Should be an essential reference tool not only for Shakespeare editors but for university and school teachers' ' Professor Ernst Honigmann, editor of Arden 3 Othello'…should become part of every reader's, and certainly every teacher's, arsenal of central reference books' - Ruth Morse, Shakespeare Survey

While Kierkegaard is perhaps known best as a religious thinker and philosopher, there is an unmistakable literary element in his writings. He often explains complex concepts and ideas by using literary figures and motifs that he could assume his readers would have some familiarity with. This dimension of his thought has served to make his writings far more popular than those of other philosophers and theologians, but at the same time it has made their interpretation more complex. Kierkegaard readers are generally aware of his interest in figures such as Faust or the Wandering Jew, but they rarely have a full appreciation of the vast extent of his use of characters from different literary periods and traditions. The present volume is dedicated to the treatment of the variety of literary figures and motifs used by Kierkegaard. The volume is arranged alphabetically by name, with Tome II covering figures and motifs from Gulliver to Zerlina.

In these essays, John O'Meara re-assesses both the tragic limitations and inherent promise of Romantic tradition in the interpretation of Shakespeare. The philosophical theory of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, is brought forward as consummating that tradition. Building on concepts which Anthroposophy supplies O'Meara proceeds to a fresh reading of Shakespeare's work. A wide range of plays is covered from Richard II to The Tempest, with special focus on Othello and King Lear. The endings of these plays, O'Meara sees as pivotal to Shakespeare's evolution into a final phase prophetic of the Romantic experience to come which Steiner fulfils.

After the breakdown of civilization during the Holocaust, Shakespeare s Merchant of Venice quickly regained its traditional position at the forefront of the West German theater scene. Despite or indeed due to the fact that the piece exhibits problematic constructions of Jewishness in the figure of the money-lender Shylock, it became an important reference point and medium of difficult debates regarding the problem of German hate and German guilt. This volume discusses important stations of this contradictory reception history from the perspective of English and German studies, theater studies and commemorative history research."

Aus dem Buch: "Die psychoanalytische Arbeit sieht sich immer wieder vor die Aufgabe gestellt, den Kranken zum Verzicht auf einen naheliegenden und unmittelbaren Lustgewinn zu bewegen. Er soll nicht auf Lust überhaupt verzichten; das kann man vielleicht keinem Menschen zumuten, und selbst die Religion muß ihre Forderung, irdische Lust fahren zu lassen, mit dem Versprechen begründen, dafür ein ungleich höheres Maß von wertvollerer Lust in einem Jenseits zu gewähren. Nein, der Kranke soll bloß auf solche Befriedigungen verzichten, denen eine Schädigung unfehlbar nachfolgt, er soll bloß zeitweilig entbehren, nur den unmittelbaren Lustgewinn gegen einen besser gesicherten, wenn auch aufgeschobenen, eintauschen lernen. Oder mit anderen Worten, er soll unter der ärztlichen Leitung jenen Fortschritt vom Lustprinzip zum Realitätsprinzip machen, durch welchen sich der reife Mensch vom Kinde scheidet." Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) war ein österreichischer Neurologe, Tiefenpsychologe, Kulturtheoretiker und Religionskritiker. Als Begründer der Psychoanalyse erlangte er weltweite Bekanntheit. Freud gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts; seine Theorien und Methoden werden bis heute viel diskutiert.

Untersuchungen aus dem Bereich der modernen Shakespeare-Forschung beleuchten vor allem die strukturelle Vielfalt der Shakespearschen Dramenform. Es erscheint daher überraschend, dass diesbezügliche Kompositionsprinzipien bereits gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts nachvollzogen und auf ein anderes literarisches Genre übertragen werden konnten. Diese Arbeit zeigt anhand von ausgewählten Textinterpretationen inwieweit und unter welchen Voraussetzungen eine kreative Shakespeare-Rezeption schon zu diesem Zeitpunkt möglich war.
