Chapter Summary

When Vondel wrote his Adam in ballingschap in 1664, its model had been published more than sixty years earlier and its author - who had been a good friend of Vondel's-had been dead for almost twenty years. In contrast to Shakespeare, who as a theatre professional was interested only in performances of his plays, Vondel engaged in the printing of his dramas. This chapter deals with the various texts of Vondel's dramas. Remarkably, during his long lifetime Vondel himself had his dramas published by only a few printers. It seems that the label New Philology is mainly ideological, while 'material philology' has a mainly practical orientation. Gysbreght van Aemstel is notorious for the history of its printings. In the case of Gebroeders a copy is extant with autograph annotations by Vondel himself. Adam in ballingschap was published twice in 1664 by the widow of Abraham de Wees.
