Cummings article selected for Russian translation

Peter Cummings, professor of English and comparative literature, has had an article, “The Most Unkindest Cut of All”: Anatomy in Shakespeare,” selected to be translated into Russian and published in “The Shakes-Readings, 2004,” a volume now in press in Moscow. The article traces Shakespeare's 12 uses of the relatively new word in English, “anatomy,” in a wide variety of technical, metaphoric, and humorous uses throughout the plays.
