Product Description

The general editors of the new series of forty volumes--the renowned Shakespeareans Stephen Orgel of Stanford University and A. R. Braunmuller of UCLA - have assembled a team of six eminent scholars who have, along with the general editors themselves, prepared new introductions and notes to all of Shakepeare's plays and poems. Redesigned in an easy-to-read format that preserves the favorite features of the original, including an essay on the theatrical world of Shakespeare, an introduction to the individual play and a note on the text used. The new Pelican Shakespeare will be an excellent resource for students, teachers, and theater professionals well into the 21st century.

Editorial Reviews

"We can more easily decide between Shakespear and any other author, than between him and himself. Shall we quote any more passages to shew his genius or the beauty of Romeo and Juliet? At that rate, we might quote the whole."
