Resource of the Week: Shakespeare Survey Online

What is it?
Shakespeare Survey Online is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism.


Why use it?
Each volume is devoted to a theme, or play, or group of plays; each also contains a section of reviews of that year's textual and critical studies, and of the year's major British performances. The virtues of accessible scholarship and a keen interest in performance, from Shakespeare's time to our own, have characterised the journal from the start.
The books are illustrated with a variety of Shakespearean images and production photographs.
Shakespeare Survey Online makes all issues of the Survey, including over 90% of the original images, available online for the first time.
