ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the criticisms of Theresa Coletti for the Records of Early English Drama (REED) project and its potential effects in the dramatic historiography. He explores the criticisms of Coletti for the REED, which focused on its editors' strategic and tactical editorial decisions and limitations of its archival-historical enterprise. He says that Coletti created a model of implied future of medieval studies prior to such limitations; however the model is travesty as it does not consider post-modern theory and thus gives vague archival evidence. He adds that REED limits the coverage of its records to prevent potentially misleading cultural history.
