The Shakespeare Conversations has returned!
Join CCM’s Shakespeare Conversations this semester as we examine one of the most famous “history plays” in the Shakespeare canon and welcome scholar Molly G. Yarn to talk about her new book. All are welcome.
Molly G. Yarn, author of Shakespeare’s ‘Lady Editors’
Molly G. Yarn’s new book is calledÂ Shakespeare’s ‘Lady Editors’: A New History of the Shakespearean Text, and the Shakespeare Conversations will welcome the scholar for a Q&A session. More on her book:
“The basic history of the Shakespearean editorial tradition is familiar and well-established. For nearly three centuries, men â€“ most of them white and financially privileged â€“ ensconced themselves in private and hard-to-access libraries, hammering out ‘their’ versions of Shakespeare’s text.
What if this is not the whole story?
A bold, revisionist and alternative version of Shakespearean editorial history, this book recovers the lives and labors of almost 70 women editors. It challenges the received wisdom that, when it came to Shakespeare, the editorial profession was entirely male-dominated until the late 20th century.”
