Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The play text is presented on one page, while the facing page is divided into two columns. One column is a glossary of obscure words and phrases and the other informs the reader what has been done in famous productions and how the play works in performance. Each volume of this series contains an introduction to the play and an appendix showing sources for the play.

Synopsis:

These popular editions allow the reader and student to look beyond the scholarly reading text to the more sensuous, more collaborative, more malleable performance text which emerges in conjunction with the commentary and notes. Each note, each gloss, each commentary reflects the stage life of the play with constant reference to the challenge of the text in performance. Readers will not only discover an enlivened Shakespeare, they will be empowered to rehearse and direct their own productions of the imagination in the process.
