Abstract: From the editor: "The essays in the main body of this issue grew from papers delivered at the Folger Institute's memorable conference, "Shakespeare and the Problem of Biography," held 3-5 April 2014 as part of the Folger Shakespeare Library's multifaceted celebration of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth. . . . At the conference, questions of methodology, genre, anecdote and wish fulfillment, the role of the archive, the utility of psychoanalytic interpretation, idealization and idolatry were broached in new and exciting ways and are included in the essays printed herein."
