Professor Emma Smith: Shakespeare and Collaboration

Professor Emma Smith: Shakespeare and Collaboration

We think of Shakespeare as the ultimate solo genius, standing aloof from his fellows and communing only with his muse. In this talk we push him off this pedestal — or, at least, give a leg-up to lots of other contributors to Team Shakespeare. The early modern theatre was a joint enterprise, and recent scholarship has identified collaborative writing, too. A more collegial figure emerges: gaining creative energy from contact with others, in the rehearsal room, the writing room and the print shop.
