Críticas: 'Tiffany Stern's essay, 'Sermons, Plays and Note-Takers: Hamlet Q1 as a 'Noted' Text', reads like an especially well-written and deftly plotted mystery novel. Taking as her subject the so-called 'bad quarto' of Hamlet, Stern leads the reader through a thoroughly documented and totally compelling rethinking of Q1's origins. [She] persuasively argues that this text is the product of a note-taking scribal audience who employed contemporary notational habits to produce a 'pirated' text for publication ? [She] brings to life a new world of early modern performance through descriptions and details that offer many small openings onto the textual culture of the period ? this essay not only offers a significant reassessment of Hamlet Q1, but also makes a claim for the cultural importance of note-taking practices in the early modern period more generally.'
