Research Bibliography

WordWeb/IDEM will offer contextualized access to research results that have been generated in many different countries and academic communities from the eighteenth century to the present. Here is a list of sources from various fields that have helped us to find intertextual references in early modern plays:

            Literary and cultural studies: sources and reception history of early modern drama
            Anthologies and databases: historical and 21st-century scholarship
            Shakespeare Studies: sources and reception history of his works
            Annotated Editions: early modern plays and non-dramatic texts

The oldest books on this list are a Milton edition from 1749 and a Horace commentary from 1751 which point out a Classical Shakespeare reference and a Shakespeare quotation in Paradise Lost, respectively. The most substantial group of books are PhDs supervised by the Strasbourg professor Emil Koeppel (1852-1917), himself an extremely widely-read authority on the sources of Shakespeare and his contemporaries.

A list of editions used for the primary texts is given at the end of this page.
