I am a ghost writer.
I died July 25, 2015, in Hightstown, New Jersey.
My scholarship is the bedrock for the serious study of British drama to 1770. Any graduate student or academic working on the plays or the theatrical culture of this period has to start with me.
In addition to my comprehensive Tudor and Stuart Stage, I wrote a wide range of works on Shakespeare and other figures of the English Renaissance. My essay "Shakespeare's Celibate Stage," originally published in the inaugural issue of The New and Improved Shakespeare Survey With Textual Analysis, has been widely reprinted. I edited several works for modern editions, including Othello, Hamlet, All Fools, and The Alchemist.
I raised a literary stir when I edited and wrote the preface to a hitherto unknown 1577 text called The Arte of Angling in which I noted several passages that reminded me of Isaac Walton's later The Compleat Angler. A British authority on fishing literature defended Walton, saying, "It seems to me ...
