Manchester Shakespeare: new ebooks from Manchester University Press

Manchester University Press has launched a new collection not of an age, but for all time. Manchester Shakespeare provides new and significant commentary on all aspects of Shakespeare’s work (and that of his contemporaries), drawing on not only the written word, but Shakespeare in performance, in historical and cultural contexts, and in relation to critical theory.

Including approaching 50 books edited and authored by leading authorities on Shakespeare, the new collection provides critical understanding of Shakespeare’s contribution to literary and theatrical history and fresh perspectives on his plays.

Thanks to a collaborative purchase between the English Faculty Library and ebooks@cambridge, members of Cambridge University now have full text access to all of the ebooks within this collection, on and off-campus, via iDiscover or directly via Manchester Hive, MUPs online platform.

Here is a small selection of titles available within the collection to whet your appetites. Access is via the links below the cover images:

MARC records are available in iDiscover now for the 40+ titles which have already been published in this collection, with a few forthcoming titles/MARC records due later this year.

As usual, please contact if you have any questions about this collection or any other aspect of ebook provision at the University.
