  • Review of "Tragic conditions in Shakespeare: disinheriting the globe" by Paul A Kottman 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 2010-05-27)
    Professor Kottman has written a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. It addresses very major issues, in what is for the most part quite an original way, and I found much of what I read illuminating. His main concern is ...
  • Review of "Hamlet and Japan" by Yoshiko Ueno, and "Otherwordly Hamlet" by John O'Meara 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 1997)
    Much of 'Hamlet and Japan' is, in fact, devoted to exactly such criticism as one might find in Western compilations offering recent approaches to a Shakespeare play.
  • Madness in Jasper Heywood's 1560 version of Seneca's Thyestes 

    Daalder, Joost (CML Inc, Indiana, 1996)
    The Roman tragedian Seneca is generally, and rightly, considered to have made a profound impact on the dramatists of the English Renaissance. As his work preceded theirs by many centuries (he lived from A.D. 1-65), and as ...

    Daalder, Joost (Western Michigan University Department of English, 1986)
    In the edition of The Spanish Tragedy prepared by Philip Edwards for the Revels Plays series, Act III, Scene xiii introduces a new character into the play who is called an "Old Man" when he is first referred to in the stage ...
  • The role of Diaphanta in 'The Changeling' 

    Daalder, Joost (Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1991-11)
    The chief function of Diaphanta in the play is to act as an example of a woman who becomes aware of the attractions of lust (in contrast to Beatrice), but is overwhelmed by it (in contrast to Isabella). There is thus a ...
  • Madness in Parts 1 and 2 of 'The honest whore': a case for close reading 

    Daalder, Joost (Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1996-11)
    The first section of this essay will advance reasons why it is impossible to understand madness in Dekker's 1 and 2 The Honest Whore (c. 1604) without a close textual reading of the kind which some critics call 'old-fashioned' ...
  • Shakespeare's attitude to gender in Macbeth 

    Daalder, Joost (Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1988-11)
    With the new interest in 'women's studies' there has been a whole flurry of works devoted to the question whether Shakespeare in any significant way discriminated against - or in favour of - women.
  • The Honest Whore, Part 2 

    Dekker, Thomas; Daalder, Joost (Editor); Hirsch, Brett D (Internet Shakespeare Editions, University of Victoria, 2015-04-04)
    The original printed text of 2 The Honest Whore on which any modern edition is based offers few problems. In the case of 1 The Honest Whore, however, there are two significantly different texts, both issued in 1604, viz. ...

  • The changeling 

    Middleton, Thomas; Rowley, William; Daalder, Joost (A&C Black, London, 2005)
    The Changeling, a play written by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley in 1622, offers a picture of the operation of folly and madness within the mind. In doing so it explores 'abnormal' mental states. While the focus is ...
  • Thyestes 

    Seneca, Lucius Annaeus; Heywood, Jasper (Trans.); Daalder, Joost (Editor) (Ernest Benn Limited, 1982)
    This is an edition of an Elizabethan translation of Lucius Annaeus Seneca's play, Thyestes, written in Latin in Imperial Rome. Thus the play presented in this volume is not merely classical, but also one translated by an ...
  • Mandrakes and Whiblins in 'The Honest Whore' 

    Daalder, Joost; Telford Moore, Antony (The University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1997)
    In Act I, scene ii of Thomas Dekker's The Honest Whore (1604), there occurs a dialogue between Viola, the wife of the linen-draper Candido, and her brother Fustigo. Fustigo comments that Candido must be either a mandrake ...
  • William Shakespeare: Othello 

    Daalder, Joost (Flinders University English Discipline and South Australian English Teachers Association, 1991)
    Othello is not often thought of as a play primarily concerned with madness, yet that is what it is.
  • Emending “The Changeling” 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1989)
    This article offers further discussion of considerations arising from editing "The Changeling": an earlier article entitled 'Punctuating "The Changeling"' examined punctuation in the F.W. Bawcutt edition of 1958, while ...
  • Punctuating “The Changeling” 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1989)
    "The Changeling" was written by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley in 1622. No manuscript of the play survives, and the earliest printed version dates from 1653, several years after both dramatists had died. The publication ...
  • “Doctor Faustus” and the Colossus of Rhodes 

    Daalder, Joost; Harris, Greg (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1986)
    Editing Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus" continues to pose a formidable difficulty for modern scholars.
  • The Text of Alinda’s Song ‘I am not proud’ in John Fletcher’s “The Pilgrim”, IV.ii. 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1992)
    Whatever John Fletcher's failings as a dramatist, there is general agreement that he was a master of song-writing. It is perplexing, therefore, to see Cyrus Hoy, in his authoritative edition of the play, produce a version ...
  • Bibliography, Criticism, and the Problem of “Doctor Faustus” 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1991)
    The question confronting the editor of 'Doctor Faustus' has revolved around whether to trust the short A text of the play which appeared in 1604, or the much longer version, B, of 1616.
  • ‘A jail, a jail’ in Dekker’s "2 Honest Whore”, 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1996)
    The text of Thomas Dekker's '2 Honest Whore' contains a number of errors which one would expect in a quarto of this kind - in essence publishing errors. This brief paper discusses one such error, crediting Alexander Dyce ...
