Shakespeare Studies is an international volume published every year in hard cover featuring essays and studies by critics and cultural historians from both hemispheres. The journal also contains substantial reviews of important books and essays dealing with the cultural history of early modern England and the place of Shakespeare's productions (together with those of his contemporaries) within it. In recent years, Shakespeare Studies has expanded to include articles and reviews on significant intellectual and historical events on the continent; on global issues pertaining to England, in particular its relationship to the Near and the Far East; and on theoretical works relevant to the critical analysis of Shakespeare and his time.

An Editorial Board of cultural historians and scholars maintains the quality of each annual volume, so that Shakespeare Studies may serve as a useful guide for all students of Shakespeare and the early modern period-for teachers, actors, and directors, as well as for research scholars.

Volume XXXVI features another in the journal's ongoing series of Forums, in which scholars exchange views on an issue of importance to early modern studies. Organised and introduced by Patrick Cheney, the Forum is entitled 'The Return of the Author' and includes commentary by ten contributors considering the issue of authorship in a postmodern milieu: Lukas Erne, David Scott Kastan, Jeffrey Knapp, Wendy Wall, Richard Wilson, Heather James, Leah S. Marcus, Brian Vickers, Richard Dutton, and Michael D. Bristol.

The articles in Volume XXXVI concentrate on interpretations of early modern plays from revisionist perspectives. Three of the essays address Shakespeare's plays: 'Hamlet as Mourning-Play: A Benjaminesque Interpretation' by Hugh Grady; '0 for a muse of fire': Henry V and Plotted Self-Exculpation' by Bradley Greenburg; and 'Eating Richard II' by Jeremy Lopez. In addition, Heather Anne Hirschfeld has contributed an essay on doctrinal controversies in Marlowe's Faustus entitled ' "The verie paines of hell": Doctor Faustus and the Controversy over Christ's Descent'.

The book review section features reviews of 14 diverse books of importance to early modern scholarship. Several of these books address theatrical issues, for example, the relationship of Shakespeare's theatre to the early modern House of Commons; the function of the human voice as a literary, historical, and performative motif in early modern English drama and culture; the places of London comedy from 1598 to 1642; the relationship of moral philosophy to Shakespearean drama; and Shakespeare's late style. Others examine broader cultural phenomena such as time, space, and motion in the age of Shakespeare; animals, rationality, and humanity in early modern England; Paris and London as cultural capitals; the Jamestown project; and politics and the passions from 1500 to 1850.

Because medieval studies are often important to the journal's readership, Volume XXXVI includes reviews of two such books, one dealing with medieval romance and the politics of cultural fantasy, and the other with Lacan's medievalism.
