The Library on Shakespeare
Guest edited by Eric Rasmussen
The Library is happy to announce the third of its annual 'Virtual Issues' which focuses on Shakespeare. The articles presented are free to download until the end of March 2017.
The Shakespearean textual studies that have appeared in The Library over the last century might best be characterized as fiercely intelligent, frustratingly combative, endlessly challenging, and sometimes embarrassingly dismissive, but also infinitely fascinating and gloriously successful in stimulating future scholarship.
Previous Virtual Issues
Each Virtual Issue is a retrospective gathering of key articles in a particular field that have appeared in the pages of The Library since the journal’s first appearance.

The first virtual issue of The Library looks at Incunabula. The issue's introduction is available free online.
