David Carnegie

David Carnegie, FRSNZ, after a BA at Toronto and PhD at University College London, taught at Guelph, Birmingham, Otago, and McGill before settling at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, where he is now Emeritus Professor of Theatre. He is co-editor of the Cambridge Works of John Webster (3 vols, 1995–2007, Vol. 4 in preparation); editing and directing Webster’s City comedies has increased his sense of the importance of early modern maps of London. He has edited several texts for the Malone Society, and co-edited Twelfth Night for the Internet Shakespeare Editions, and Broadview Press (2014), with Mark Houlahan. He has published on editing in The Library and The Harvard Library Bulletin, and has an increasing interest in stagecraft, which informs a range of his publications. Arising from his direction of the world premiere of Gary Taylor’s The History of Cardenio, he has co-edited The Quest for Cardenio: Shakespeare, Fletcher, Cervantes, and the Lost Play (OUP, 2012).
