Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I feel that I have spent half my career with one or another Pelican Shakespeare in my back pocket. Convenience, however, is the least important aspect of the new Pelican Shakespeare series. Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller who understand that these are plays for performance as well as great texts for contemplation." (Patrick Stewart)

The distinguished Pelican Shakespeare series, which has sold more than four million copies, is now completely revised and repackaged.

Each volume features:

* Authoritative, reliable texts

* High quality introductions and notes

* New, more readable trade trim size

* An essay on the theatrical world of Shakespeare and essays on Shakespeare's life and the selection of texts

Synopsis:

The general editors of the new series of forty-two volumes — 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 Shakespeare's plays and poems. Redesigned in an easy-to-read format that preserves the favorite features of the original - -and 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 twenty-first century.
