BARNADINE'S STRAW: The Devil in Shakespeare's Detail

The friendly truce that has come to exist between two Shakespearian
constituencies - the scholars and the practitioners - has brought a new
intellectual credibility to the latter together with, for the former, an
absorption in the minutiae of live performance.

Despite the occasional unease felt by an actor on a lecture platform or by the academic feeling like a breathless fan, we know at last that we are engaged in the same enquiry, though probably as far as ever from any conclusions. Meanwhile, our two audiences, readers and spectators, supply a market for Shakespeare that seems equally indifferent to educational policy and to changing intellectual fashion.
