|July 10, 2011 - Moreana Vol. 48 - 183-184
Once again the June 2011 Moreana, Vol. 48, No. 183-184, is a double issue with its 278 pages. For the cover, we have remained faithful to the sketch of More’s face by Holbein, which was so many times used in an array of different colours in past issues, and which we have chosen not to alter any more, preferring to keep its original beauty and its warm colours, now the aesthetic mark of the journal and the new website, www.moreana.org which is coming soon.
So much for the outside. As for the inside, Moreana 183-184 publishes the studies presented at the Dallas Center for Thomas More Studies in November 2010, during the Conference on “Thomas More’s influence on William Shakespeare”. The papers address and review a number of connections between More and Shakespeare. The works explored are essentially More’s History of Richard III, Shakespeare’s trilogy: I-3 Henry VI, Richard III, as well as the play Sir Thomas More (or The Book of Sir Thomas More) in which Shakespeare participated. Utopia is not forgotten in this issue; Utopian names have been scrutinized once more and a novel interpretation proposed. This Moreana also explores the topic of Providence vs. Fortuna in Thomas More.
Finally, two Calls for Papers complete this first 2011 issue: an appeal to contribute papers on Education and the Renaissance Humanists and another for the Paris July 2012 conference on Thomas More, Renaissance and Tyranny.
