Reading Readings begins with a long provocative essay by Random Cloud decrying eighteenth-century Shakespeare editions. The seventeen essays that follow assert the power of eighteenth-century editions to engage and inform the late twentieth-century reader. Together these essays show the many ways in which an examination of eighteenth-century Shakespeare editions can illuminate our understanding of Shakespeare, the eighteenth century, and the history and practice of editing.
