What's the Worst Thing

You Can Do to Shakespeare?

Co-authored with Julian Yates Palgrave McMillan, 2013

Medieval and Eary Modern Film and Media

(Palgrave Macmillan, 2008)

PAPERBACK (2010)

Review in Parergon (click here)

"Burt is a creative scholar known for pushing the boundaries in his work, and this book accomplishes that with panache."

Review in Renaissance Quarterly by Melissa Croteau, Professor of English at California Baptist University

Review by Adam O’Brien in Bristol Journal of English Studies, 2014

"A marvelously rich and surprising book. Combining formal attentiveness with the giddy pleasures of the improbable detour, Burt's analysis of what he terms the 'philological uncanny' takes us from medieval illuminated manuscripts to digital media, from Shakespeare to spell-check, from the copyright page to the interpretive industry itself. By looking to the margins--the supplementary note, the anecdotal residue, the excrescent detail--Burt opens central, expansive questions about the logic of texts, about the character of historical time, even about the ongoing vexations of the academic unconscious."

-Christopher Pye, Professor of English, Williams College and author of The Regal Phantasm: Shakespeare and the Politics of Spectacle and The Vanishing: Shakespeare, the Subject, and Early Modern Culture

What if it were now possible to psychoanalyze our compulsive desire for historicism (old and new)? What if the arrival of the new media (computer screens, pdf, film, DVD, etc) with its complex paratextual apparatus made legible the unconscious filmic techniques of contemporary literary critics? Richard Burt's astonishingly ambitious Medieval and Early Modern Film and Media makes just this argument, moving effortlessly between seemingly disparate fields (historicism, film studies, and digital technologies) to offer a symptomatic reading of the "historicist uncanny." The book proceeds as a mesmerizing talking cure / trip to the movies that makes it possible to imagine all sorts of productively neurotic critical futures.

--Julian Yates, Associate Professor, Univ. of Delaware and author of Error, Misuse, Failure: Object Lessons from the English Renaissance
