Textual Intercourse: Collaboration, Authorship, and Sexualities in Renaissance Drama

Copertina anteriore
Cambridge University Press, 20 feb 1997 - 223 pagine
Textual Intercourse brings together literary criticism, theater history, the study of printed books, and gender studies, to show how the writing of Renaissance drama was conceptualized in the languages of sex, gender, and eroticism. Jeffrey Masten argues that the plays of Shakespeare and others, and the way in which those plays were first printed, illustrates a shift from a model of collaboration to one of singular authorship. Using methods attuned to sexuality and gender, Masten illuminates questions of authorship and intellectual property.

Pagina 1 - In the same Grave Fletcher was buried, here Lies the Stage-Poet, Philip Massinger. Playes they did write together; were great friends, And now one grave includes them in their ends. So whom on earth nothing did part, beneath Here (in their Fames) they lie, in spight of death.
