Shakespeare, Man of the Theater: Proceedings of the Second Congress of the International Shakespeare Association, 1981
University of Delaware Press, 1983 - Drama - 265 pages
This volume presents a sampling of the more than 250 papers presented at the Congress of the ISA held at Stratford-upon-Avon in August 1981. Most of the papers are concerned with Shakespeare as a writer for the theater. Other essays deal with Shakespeare as a literary, rather than theatrical, writer. Several of the offerings cover subjects usually neglected, and develop fresh insight into his work.

Page 21 - Yes, trust them not ! for there is an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his " Tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide," supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you ; and, being an absolute Johannes Factotum, is, in his own conceit, the only Shake-scene in a country.
