What are you reading?

It’s time for some show and tell. I’m curious to hopefully find some new reading material…So who’s reading some good books right now?

Currently I’m working on a very interesting piece called The Shakespearean Dramaturg: A Theoretical and Practical Guide by Andrew James Hartley. He’s the resident Dramaturg at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival. There’s a lot of cool thoughts on editing scripts; working with directors, designers, actors; and lots about how to effectively serve the production rather than become “The Shakespeare Police.” I’ll post a write up after I’m finished.

Next on my list will be Think On My Words: Exploring Shakespeare’s Language by David Crystal, co-author of Shakespeare’s Words. I’m very excited to read that. I don’t know too much about it but I’m a fan of the author.

And after that I enter into the world of Shakespearean fiction novels for the first time. What’s on your reading list?
