Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Completely re-edited, the New Folger Library editions of Shakespeare's plays put readers in touch with current ways of thinking about Shakespeare. Each freshly edited text is based directly on what the editors consider the best early printed version of the play. Each volume contains full explanatory notes on pages facing the text of the play, as well as a helpful introduction to Shakespeare's language. The accounts of William Shakespeare's life, his theater, and the publication of his plays present the latest scholarship, and the annotated reading lists suggest sources of further information. The illustrations of objects, clothing, and mythological figures mentioned in the plays are drawn from the Library's vast holdings of rare books. At the conclusion of each play there is a full essay by an outstanding scholar who assesses the play in light of today's interests and concerns.

Synopsis:

The Bard's fascinating historical and political study of a monarch's struggle to keep his crown gets special treatment from the internationally acclaimed Folger Library, which provides material from its collection for the illustrations. The literary series features brief and simple instructions to Shakespeare's language, scene-by-scene plot summaries, explanatory notes for archaic expressions, and an essay discussing the play.
