Hello! I’m Sarah Waters, a PhD student at Oxford Brookes University, I’m currently working on research which looks at the representation of female melancholy in Early Modern theatre (particularly Shakespeare’s plays) right through to the present day. Snippets of this might pop up here and there on this blog.
This blog is mainly about Shakespeare, Shakespeare where we don’t expect him as we turn to Shakespeare appropriation and adaptation, it also features reviews, Spark-Note style summaries of lesser known plays, and write-ups on conferences. Occasionally there will be a post which doesn’t mention Shakespeare. But for the most part this is his domain.
