SHAKESPEARE AND MIDDLETON A REVIEW ARTICLE by ProQuest

VIEWS: 2 PAGES: 6

In the nineteenth century, Shakespeare was deemed a solitary genius, towering above his fellows. It is comparable to what now happens in film and TV scriptwriting, with the 'plotter' (the story editor, we would say) in charge of assembling various contributions. Since the basic unit of drama was the scene, it was convenient to assign scenes and even plot-lines to different writers. Middleton is hard to grasp in the fullness of his achievement, but the methods of the last few decades now justify a revised and extensive view of his oeuvre.
