The Upstart Crow: A Shakespeare Journal (Archived)
For 35 years and 31 volumes, The Upstart Crow: A Shakespeare Journal brought its readers essays, performance reviews, poems, and thought-provoking ideas concerning Shakespeare's works. The title derives from the first recorded allusion to Shakespeare by a rival playwright and poet on the Elizabethan stage, Robert Greene. Greene called Shakespeare an "upstart crow" on the stage because of the phenomenal success of his early history plays and comedies. Because Shakespeare was an actor and a playwright, Greene was referring to the Bard's theatrical gestures onstage as well.
Founded in 1978, The Upstart Crow came to Clemson University from the University of Tennessee a few years later. It enjoyed a long run here, most notably under the editorship of the late Jim Andreas (who also co-founded the Clemson Shakespeare Festival) and, more recently, Elizabeth Rivlin.
In 2013, The Upstart Crow ceased publication. Shortly thereafter, the press completed a project to digitize the journal's past issues, which are now available in PDF format.
