Shakespeare Studies is an international volume published every year in hard cover that contains essays and studies by critics and cultural historians from both hemispheres. Although the journal maintains a focus on the theatrical milieu of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, it is also concerned with Britain's intellectual and cultural connections to the continent, its sociopolitical history, and its place in the emerging globalism of the period. The journal includes substantial reviews of significant publications dealing with these issues, as well as theoretical studies relevant to scholars of early modern literature.Volume XXXV features another in the journal's ongoing series of Forums, in which scholars exchange views on an issue of importance to Renaissance studies. Organized and introduced by Jean E. Howard, this Forum is entitled ""English Cosmopolitanism in the Early Modern Moment,"" and includes the interdisciplinary perspectives of five contributors. This volume also features two essays on Shakespeare's tragedies in the context of early modern cultural history; a review article that assesses the contributions of the distinguished critic Jonathan Dollimore; and other articles focusing on the significance of the so-called Shakespeare industry in modern times. Reviews in this volume consider studies of such wide-ranging historical issues as gender and literacy, sexual practices, the book trade, and England's cultural encounters with Italy.
