"...very considerably expands the sense of textual mobility, fluidity, and adaptability of all Renaissance drama. Highly recommended..." Choice "Her [Maguire's] argument against piratical reconstruction is convincing." SEL "Laurie Maguire's excellent book, Shakespearean Suspect Texts, is important for two main reasons: first, it reviews both the contributions and the limitations of the New Bibliographers...secondly, it examines the theory of memorial reconstruction carefully and rationally, providing useful distinctions and conclusions...lively, witty, and readable prose..." Jay L. Halio, Journal of English and Germanic Philology "It is a pleasure to read a successful book on an important and difficult subject by a scholar who carefully condenses and clearly expresses an immense amount of detail, a wide range of knowledge, and a perceptive understanding of play(book)s and the persons who make (and mar) them...it makes significant contributions to twentieth-and twenty-first century Shakespearean and Renaissance dramatic scholarship that will be propagated through the work of others..." Tom Clayton, Shakespeare Quarterly "The study is filled both with precious gems...and with small nuggets...[Maguire] shines in a real intellectual forte..." Patrick Cheney, MSA Book Reviews
