A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book examines the manner in which Shakespeare s Hamlet was perceived in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and represented in the available visual media. The more than 2,000 visual images of Hamlet that the author has identified both reflected the critical reception of the play and simultaneously influenced the history of the ever-changing constructed cultural phenomenon that we refer to as Shakespeare.

About the Author:

Alan R. Young is Professor Emeritus of Acadia University. He is a graduate of the University of Bristol, the University of East Africa, the University of East Anglia, and the University of Alberta. He began his teaching career as a Government Education Officer in Kenya and later taught English at Simon Fraser University, the University of Alberta, and Acadia University. He is Professor Emeritus of Acadia University. He is a member of the editorial board of the journal  Emblematica  and has published extensively on the Renaissance emblem, Shakespeare, the tournament, and Atlantic Canadian Literature. His books that deal with emblematic topics include a facsimile edition of Henry Peacham's  Emblemata Varia  (1976), Henry Peacham  (1979),  Tudor and Jacobean Tournaments  (1987),  The English Tournament Imprese  (1988),  His Majesty's Royal Ship: A Critical Edition of Thomas Heywood's "A True Description"  (1990),  The Art of the Emblem: Essays in Honor of Karl Josef Höltgen  (ed. with Michael Bath and John Manning) (1993),  Emblematic Flag Devices of the English Civil Wars 1642-1660  (1995), and  Henry Peacham's Manuscript Emblem Books  (1998). He has long been interested in the application of computer technology to research in the humanities. Three of the books mentioned above -  The English Tournament Imprese, Emblematic Flag Devices of the English Civil Wars , and Henry Peacham's  Manuscript Emblem Books  - were based upon computer databases that recorded information concerning collections of emblematic material. His most recent books -  Hamlet and the Visual Arts , 1709-1900 (2002) and  Punch and Shakespeare in the Victorian Era  (2007) - also made use of extensive databases of visual materials compiled by the author. The database for Hamlet has been published separately as part of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Shakespeare Electronic Archive.
