I was fortunate to be the co-founder and co-editor of Shakespeare Magazine, a publication of Georgetown University and Cambridge University Press. Together with my co-editor, Nancy Goodwin and later, Martha Harris, we were in existence from 1996 to 2003. Our audience was mainly teachers, but our reach extended to theater companies and the general public.
Until recently, some of our archives lived on our Website, created and hosted by Amy Ulen. But alas, all things come to an end (or do they?) and the site was closed. But I managed to salvage the featured articles from the site, and I’ve posted some of my favorites below. I hope you enjoy them.
- Three Scenes, Three Societies, Three Shylocks By Mary Ellen Dakin
- Shakespeare With Tears by Russ McDonald
- The Opening of the Globe: anInterview with Mark Rylance
- The Dark Pleasures of Trevor Nunn’s Twelfth Night by Peter Holland
One of my favorite features of the magazine was the Broadsheet, located on the inside back cover. Simply stated, these were one-page, copy-ready handouts for teachers. I’ve converted several of these to PDFs and posted them below. Check them out:
