Lady Anne Bacon Drury (1572-1624) was the granddaughter and niece of two of England's Lord Keepers of the Great Seal, Sir Nicholas Bacon and Sir Francis Bacon. Lady Anne was also the friend and patroness of John Donne and Joseph Hall; however, she deserves to be remembered in her own right. Within her massive country house, Lady Anne created a tiny painted room that she seems to have used as a kind of three-dimensional book. The walls consisted of panels of pictures and mottoes, grouped under Latin sentences. These panels can still be viewed in a Suffolk museum: Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich. Some panels point to classical and Biblical sources, and to popular emblem books. The sources of other panels are more recondite, while still others are original compositions by Lady Anne. The panels exhibit a contemptus mundi theme and reflect a struggle with ambition, pride, and even despair. Some panels also appear to register carefully veiled but pointed critiques of political and religious events and figures. Lady Anne's painted closet or 'architext' is thus relevant to a wide range of early modern scholarship in various disciplines but is as yet largely unappreciated. For the first time in four hundred years, this book fully describes the closet and places it in its personal, social, intellectual, and aesthetic contexts. It argues for the painted closet's importance for understanding early modern conceptualizations of private and public spaces, and for illuminating fundamental early modern habits of seeing and reading (especially combinations of text and image). Finally, this book explores the closet as an example of the ingenious ways in which female subjectivity found ways to express itself even within the constraints of early modern patriarchal society in England.

Moderne mythische Gestalt und Kernbestand des kulturellen Kanons. Kaum eine Figur beherrscht so sehr die westliche Vorstellung vom Theater wie Shakespeares Hamlet. Das Handbuch beschäftigt sich mit dem Hamlet-Stoff und seiner Deutung und vermittelt Hintergrundwissen zum Shakespeareschen Drama. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der vielgestaltigen Rezeptionsgeschichte. Sowohl die Bühnengeschichte als auch die Aneignungen der Figur in Kunst, Literatur, Musik, Film und Populärkultur werden ausführlich beleuchtet. Mit vielen Beispielen, teilweise in englischer Sprache.
