Call for Papers 2005

The Shakespeare-Jahrbuch 2005 is planned as a special
issue on 'Shakespeare, Goethe and Schiller'. Those
three have sometimes been grouped together in Germany
as the nation's triad of classical poets. The
editorial board invites contributions that would
comment upon this gesture of appropriating
Shakespeare and associating the three authors, that
would inquire into similarities and differences
between Shakespeare, Goethe and Schiller and the
reception of their works. If Shakespeare has been
read in Germany by a public whose norm are the
dramatic styles of Goethe and Schiller, how do these
two appear to English readers familiar with
Shakespeare? Manuscripts (about 5000 words) should be
sent to the "Gesamtredaktion" in Munich by March 31,
