Shakespeare Reshaped, 1606-1623



Oxford University Press

The previous chapters have been able to identify and discuss some of the modifications made in Shakespeare's plays in Jacobean theatre that Shakespeare may not have approved of. There were certain things that he might not have been able to control such as the law, how some of the plays were portrayed after his death, and how some passages may have been interpolated during the revivals of earlier plays. As such, it is realized that some of Shakespeare's textual intentions may not have reached his audiences because of the various alterations made on the theatre scene. In spite of how Shakespeare had intended his plays to be performed, it was the theatre that caused some of the betrayals in various editions of the plays.

Keywords:   Jacobean theatre, textual intentions, betrayals, performance, interpolation, law, alterations
