More About This Textbook

Overview

Edited by the eminent A.R. Braunmuller, this thorough edition of King John—the first scholarly edition in almost fifteen years—makes a significant contribution to the study of Shakespeare's works. Braunmuller offers a wide-ranging critical introduction, which focuses on the play's political relevance in Elizabethan England, its relationship to legal issues of the day, its treatment of women and families, and its overall aesthetic importance in Shakespeare's early career. He also provides a richly detailed stage history, full annotations that are especially sensitive to the play's language and staging, and an ample bibliographical study of the Folio (1623) text. The most comprehensive and up-to-date edition of King John currently available, this book is an invaluable resource for Shakespearean scholars, students, and theatergoers alike.

The Oxford Shakespeare offers authoritative texts from leading scholars in editions designed to interpret and illuminate the plays for modern readers.

    Excellent Version of King John.

    I've studied drama and in college did this very play. This book is not a "scan" but a well edited adaption unique in it's own ways and true to the subject.
