ItemReview of "Six Renaissance Tragedies" by Gibson(Parergon, 1999)Review of Colin Gibson's book "Six Renaissance Tragedies" (Basingstoke: MacMillan, 1997). Daalder believes that Gibson has been unsuccessful in breaking new ground or bringing valuable work already done by others together in this volume.
ItemReview of "Hospitable Performances: Dramatic Genre and Cultural Practices in Early Modern England" by Palmer(Oxford University Press, 1995)Review of Daryl Palmer's book "Hospitable Performances: Dramatic Genre and Cultural Practices in Early Modern England" (West Lafayette, Indiana: Purdue University Press, 1992).
ItemReview of "Revenge Tragedy" by Simkin(Parergon, 2002)Review of Steve Simkin's book "Revenge Tragedy" (Houndsmill: Palgrave, 2001). Daalder explains that the title of this anthology of previously published 'contemporary critical essays' is in part misleading because some of the major revenge tragedies one would expect to see discussed, such as "Hamlet" and "The Jew of Malta", are left out of this volume.
ItemReview of "The Convent of Pleasure and Other Plays by Margaret Cavendish" by Shaver.(Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis group, 2001)Review of Anne Shaver's edition of "The Convent of Pleasure and Other Plays by Margaret Cavendish" (Baltimore and London: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999). According to Daalder, the selection offered in this anthology is gratifyingly diversified, and is timely considering the attention which this author is at present attracting.
