For the past fifty years literary studies and criticism have been dominated by formalist, structural and text-centered approaches. The editor of this volume, Jerome J. McGann, has been arguing in recent years for more expansive and contextual procedures. In this collection of essays he has brought together a group of distinguished collaborators--including Terry Eagleton, Marilyn Butler, Cecil Lang, and Sandra Gilbert--whose work emphasizes the importance of social and historical methodologies for the study of literary texts. Representing a variety of viewpoints and critical strategies, these critics together demonstrate the sociohistorical dimensions of literary works, provide examples of how studies of such literary works might be pursued, and suggest some central areas of investigation. The resulting effort to reconstitute some vital and neglected critical approaches will engage students and scholars of literature, and move them to reassess current critical assumptions. Fundamental to this collection is the sense that literary texts are more than self-enclosed verbal constructs. In his introduction to the essays, editor McGann examines how and why the concept of referentiality fell into disfavor with modern literary schools. The antihistorical bias of the New Critics, Structuralists, and Deconstructionists, he argues, ultimately limit their critical vision. For literature, McGann stresses, has various points of reference to a larger world of social interactions and historical influence; only by recognizing and reconstructing that world can we mine the full meaning, and communicative potential, of a fictional work.

Images of metamorphosis characterize Shakespeare's drama on every level. Once the image is established by simile, metaphor, or direct allusion, it is then transformed into the stuff of theatre. The images are charged with tension, excitement, and sometimes humour. The protagonists assume the posture of the pagan gods, heroes and others, depicted in literature and the visual arts and attempt to play roles for which they are often ill-suited or unprepared. After trial and learning they undergo genuine transformations as a result of actions for which they are responsible, and learn valuable lessons. This is an approach to Shakespeare's use of metamorphosis, using The Taming of the Shrew, Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, A Winter's Tale, and others to demonstrate transformations on several levels.
