 An earlier version of this paper was presented at the 31st Annual Meeting of the Shakespeare Association of America, which was held in Victoria (British Columbia) in April 2003, and at "The Condition of the Subject" Conference (University of London, 2003). I would like to thank Michael Best (ISE, General Editor) and Eric Rasmussen (ISE, Textual Editor) for their support, and Richard Proudfoot for reading my work and making useful suggestions. I would finally like to express my gratitude to the British Academy for awarding me an Overseas Conference Grant to travel to Victoria in April 2003.
