About the Project

The James Shirley Project seeks to produce a modernized-spelling edition of The Complete Works of James Shirley (OUP), as well as an authoritative original-spelling online text of his works. Project members are also producing a volume of critical essays on Shirley, articles, and papers.

The AHRC has funded the first phase of the project, which is conducted by Prof. Barbara Ravelhofer (PI) at Durham University, Prof. Eugene Giddens (CoI) at Anglia Ruskin University, and Dr Teresa Grant (CoI) at the University of Warwick respectively.

At Durham, research covers Shirley’s poems, entertainments, and last plays for the Oxford edition of his Complete Works.
