It is a few years later and there is a small conference at Stanford on early modern literature and culture: a day and a half of a rather packed schedule, including brief papers and a couple of longer keynote addresses. Though Harry is not one of the speakers, he attends faithfully, sits in the front row, and performs as a highly energetic discussant. At a certain moment after sending this first book off to the publisher, the author decided to undertake a cure for his schizophrenia and turn himself into a theatrically based literary critic of Shakespeare. The National Endowment for the Humanities bought the idea, and the author went off to London to read everything that had already been written in this vein. In certain respects, it was a heady time for such efforts. Artistic production itself turns out to be enabled by this expanding of voices and auditors, representers and viewers.

Keywords:   Harry Berger, schizophrenia, literary critic, London, Shakespeare
