ItemBreaking the Rules: Editorial Problems in Dekker and Middleton's "The Honest Whore, Part I".(Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1996) Daalder, Joost; Telford Moore, AntonyThe immediate aim of this article is three-fold: to give a reappraisal of some of the most important evidence relating to the textual history of "The Honest Whore, Part I" (STC 6501, 6501a, 6502); to present new evidence concerning the text of this play; and to assess the relative authority of the play's two principal early editions. Our ultimate aim, though, is editorial rather than purely bibliographical. The most authoritative edition of "1 Honest Whore" now available, that contained in Fredson Bowers' old-spelling edition of "The Dramatic Works of Thomas Dekker", is (as we intend to demonstrate) significantly flawed, and it is hoped that the findings presented here will provide a foundation for future editorial efforts to realise a more accurate and authentic text of this underrated play. It should also be made clear that this article is, in a sense, a prolegomenon to the forthcoming Revels Plays edition of "The Honest Whore, Parts I and II", which will be edited by Joost Daalder alone. In other words, this article presents bibliographical material which is too detailed and discursive to be included in the Revels volume, but which is nevertheless essential to a consideration of the textual strategies employed in that edition. At the same time, we hope bibliographers and textual critics will find the article to be of interest in its own right. ItemThe changeling(A&C Black, London, 2005) Middleton, Thomas; Rowley, William; Daalder, JoostThe Changeling, a play written by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley in 1622, offers a picture of the operation of folly and madness within the mind. In doing so it explores 'abnormal' mental states. While the focus is on what happens within the individual, the impact on others is not ignored. Madness is of greater concern than folly, and is presented particularly in association with sex. ItemThe state of the art - current critical research(Continuum, New York, 2011-04-14) Daalder, Joost'The State of the Art - current critical research' appears as Chapter 3 in 'Women beware women: a critical guide', edited by Andrew Hiscock. Review from the website states: "This comprehensive collection of essays, beginning with Andrew Hiscock's historical account of Women Beware Women, combines fresh research, provocative new interpretations and a useful account of performances of one of Middleton's most powerful plays. Such established scholars as Helen Wilcox, Robert C. Evans and Coppelia Kahn join new voices for pioneering work on a major English playwright.” – Arthur F. Kinney, Thomas W.
