Abstract

REVIEWS Duffin demonstrates how fruitful such connections can be once identified (e.g. the messenger Rogero in The Winter’s Tale, named after an ironically appropriate ballad). A useful foreword by Stephen Orgel draws our attention to just how much music would have been heard before, during and after any Shakespearean play. And the volume includes a CD of half of the material. The contents are arranged in alphabetical order by incipit/title, but indexes allow one to find, for example, every piece of music needed to perform, or referred to in, King Lear. A very valuable resource for the theatre as well as for scholars. [doi: 10.1093/fmls/cqi310] GARBER , MARJORIE . A Manifesto for Literary Studies.
