About the Author

Laurie Maguire is a Fellow of Magdalen College and Reader in English at Oxford University. Her books include Shakespearean Suspect Texts (1996), Studying Shakespeare (2004), Where There?s a Will There?s a Way (2006), and Shakespeare?s Names (2007). Maguire has published widely on Renaissance drama, textual problems, performance, and women's studies.


?Maguire ? does not seek to force the essays into convenient (and conventional) critical boxes. Rather, she asks her contributors to open their essays with discussions of the questions and contexts that drove them to pursue their topic and then write about it. Highly recommended.?
