Synopses & Reviews
Incorporating thirty-eight volumes of Shakespeare's work, this superb series is distinguished by its skilled and unobtrusive editing, under the scholarly and sensitive supervision of Alfred Harbage.
Great pains have been taken to follow Shakespeare's intentions with regard to the act and scene division and the exact form of speech. The editing has been done from the quarto or folio texts, depending on which is considered more authoritative, and the ideal has been to reproduce the chosen texts with as few alterations as possible. In order to help the reader and student, the annotations have been arranged on the relevant pages, providing an easily accessible and indispensable source of information.
