Volumes that I prize above my dukedom …


Amongst the cosmetic changes I’ve made over the past few days, you might have noticed the arrival of a new page:  The Boar’s Head Bookshelf.

What’s that all about?

Having the OCD tendencies that recently caused me such angst with my Arden Thirds, I wanted to index and categorise the books, and I dare say at some stage other resources like audio, that accompany them and inform my thinking about Shakespeare and the Early Modern Period.

At the time of posting, there are 15 entries on there, but I’ll continue to add others from my collection, probably in groups of 5-10, on an irregular basis.

As I explain on the page, I tend to dip in and out of these resources rather than reading them from cover to cover.  Where I’ve read a ‘critical mass’ that allows me to give a reasonable opinion, I’ve included a rating, summary and very brief review.  These are colour-coded for ease of reference.

What’s missing?  What have I over – or under- rated?  Drop me a line and let me know.
