in Shakespeare and Spenser
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter explores Shakespeare's counter-Spenserian authorship, emphasising the importance of re-thinking Shakespearean authorship, because most critics still see Shakespeare as a ‘man of the theatre’. It also examines one example of Shakespeare's counter-Spenserian authorship, and tries to recover Shakespeare's concern for literary authorship within the anonymity of the medium of theatre. The analysis presented in the chapter helps in questioning two well-known and interrelated views of Shakespeare's career.
