To let thee know I am no coward I


To let thee know all that I haue contriued


If I, the next time that I meet the hind

If I, the next time that I meet the slave


The next time that I take thee neare my house


But now I am going to see what floode it is


Now I am going to London vpon hope

And now I am going to fling them in the Temes


But braul not when I am gone in any case,

But sirs be sure to speede him, when he comes


Nay sirs, touch not his man in any case,

But stand close, and take you fittest standing


Come M. Francklin let vs go on softly

Come M. Francklin, let vs go to bed


Now M. Francklin let vs go walke in Paules


Pardon me M. Arden I can no more


Pardon me M. Arden, Ile away


What M. Arden, you are well met,

I haue longd this fortnights day to speake with you


Mistres Arden you are well met,

I am sorry that your husband is from home


Come M. Arden let vs be going


Come let vs be going, and wele bate at Rochester


Shakespeare and the Future of Theory @RoutledgeLit published today

Dr Johann Gregory

Shakespeare and the Future of Theory, eds. François-Xavier Gleyzon and Johann Gregory, convenes internationally renowned Shakespeare scholars, and scholars of the Early Modern period, and presents, discusses, and evaluates the most recent research and information concerning the future of theory in relation to Shakespeare’s corpus. Original in its aim and scope, the book argues for the critical importance of thinking Shakespeare now, and provides extensive reflections and profound insights into the dialogues between Shakespeare and Theory. Contributions explore Shakespeare through the lens of design theory, queer theory, psychoanalysis, Derrida and Foucault, amongst others, and offer an innovative interdisciplinary analysis of Shakespeare’s work. This book was originally published as two special issues of English Studies.
