Shakespearean Genealogies of Power proposes a new view on Shakespeare's involvement with the legal sphere: as a visible space between the spheres of politics and law and well able to negotiate legal and political, even constitutional concerns, Shakespeare's theatre opened up a new perspective on normativity. His plays reflect, even create, "history" in a new sense on the premises of the older conceptions of historical and legal exemplarity: examples, cases, and instances are to be reflected rather than treated as straightforwardly didactic or salvific. Thus, what comes to be recognized, reflected and acknowledged has a disowning, alienating effect, whose enduring aftermath rather than its theatrical immediacy counts and remains effective. In Shakespeare, the law gets hold of its normativity as the problematic efficacy of unsolved - or rarely ever completely solved - problems: on the stage of the theatre, the law has to cope with a mortgage of history rather than with its own success story. The exemplary interplay of critical cultural and legal theory in the twentieth-century - between Carl Schmitt and Hans Kelsen, Walter Benjamin and Ernst Kantorowicz, Hans Blumenberg and Giorgio Agamben, Robert Cover and Niklas Luhmann - found in Shakespeare's plays its speculative instruments.

Shakespeare in Print is a comprehensive 2003 account of Shakespeare publishing and an indispensable research resource. Andrew Murphy sets out the history of the Shakespeare text from the Renaissance through to the twenty-first century, from the twin perspectives of editing and publishing history. Murphy tackles issues of editorial and textual theory in an accessible and engaging manner. He draws on a wide range of archival materials and attends to topics little explored by previous scholars, such as the importance of Scottish and Irish editions in the eighteenth century, the rise of the educational edition and the history and significance of mass-market editions. The extensive appendix is an invaluable reference tool which provides full publishing details of all single-text Shakespeare editions up to 1709 and all collected editions up to 1821. The listing also provides details of a selected range of major editions beyond these dates to the present day.
