Closet Drama: History, Theory, Form introduces the emerging field of Closet Drama Studies by featuring twelve original essays from distinguished scholars who offer fresh and illuminating perspectives on closet drama as a genre. Examining an unusual mix of historical narratives, performances, and texts from the Renaissance to the present, this collection unleashes a provocative array of theoretical concerns about the phenomenon of the closet play—a dramatic text written for reading rather than acting.

This newest addition to LTP's Sourcebook series of anthologies honors Mary of Nazareth, mother of Jesus, mother of God and mother of the church. Like the other volumes in the series, A Sourcebook about Mary gathers hymns, poetry, scripture and prayers, arranging them according to the eight phrases of the Ave Maria, or Hail Mary, one the most beloved of Catholic prayers. These phrases are then answered by a section from the Magnificat, Mary's extravagant affirmation of God's enduring love and constant care for the poor. Acclamations from the Litany of Loretto, and extended praise of Mary as model and disciple, grace each section. A Sourcebook about Mary is a marvelous addition to any spiritual library, and it makes a wonderful gift for anyone with a special love for Mary: mother, woman, advocate and protector. It can be used for private prayer and devotional reading, as well as for homily and liturgy preparation during Advent and Christmas, and on feasts of Mary. Parents and grandparents, womenand men, priests and other ministers, young and old, will all find in this collection a treasury of praise for the first and model disciple.

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night presents a character who is a literary descendant of Sir John Falstaff: Sir Toby Belch. Like Falstaff, Sir Toby is bombastic, mendacious, and pusillanimous. As in Falstaff’s case, these character traits might be offset by the humor of the presentation; however, in this reader’s eyes, the humor does not redeem him or make him lovable. Malvolio is another person worthy of close consideration. As a near archetypical Puritan, Malvolio excites reader and audience antipathy. His treatment at the hands of Sir Toby, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and Maria is highly questionable, however. Such bullying as he receives is, at least in 2013, detestable. Additionally, his deserved revenge is given only lip service. However, the love stories of Twelfth Night probably ought to be our primary consideration. These and the confusion of characters offer a satisfying dramatic experience.

John Webster's classic revenge tragedy The Duchess of Malfi was first performed in 1613 and published in 1623. This guide offers students an introduction to its critical and performance history, including recent versions on stage and screen. It includes a keynote chapter outlining major areas of current research on the play and four new critical essays presenting new critical positions that offer divergent perspectives on Webster's religio-political allegiances and the politics and gendering of secrecy in the play. Finally, a guide to critical, web-based and production-related resources and an annotated bibliography provide a basis for further individual research.
