About the Author

Gary Taylor is Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University. Gabriel Egan is Professor of Shakespeare Studies at De Montfort University.


"The New Oxford Shakespeare: Authorship Companion is a text that challenges the ways in which we attempt to define what we mean by Shakespeare and his work, and we should expect nothing less from Taylor and the Oxford Shakespeare. In the present, the text stands as partly an experimental attempt to affirm an approach to authorship and partly a traditional updated reference text. Its greatest measure will of course be its use in the future and the influence it has on the next phase of Shakespeare editing and authorship studies." -- Jennifer Young, The English Association

"This is a great book that every Renaissance scholar and student at all levels needs to read to understand the hidden chaos behind the seeming certainty in the attributions to an author that has been perceived as a unified and unshakable entity in British literature." -- Anna Faktorovich, Pensylvania Literary Journal

"It serves not only as a guide to its readers but as the essential accompaniment to the other volumes of the New Oxford Shakespeare�" -- Heather Hirschfeld, Bulletin of the Comediantes

"The Authorship Companion is a specialist's banquet, a garden of discussion, argument, analysis, interpretation, speculation, information, and theoretical reflection, equal parts majestic survey of the state of authorship and deep dives into technical questions." --Henry S. Turner, SEL
