Overview

(Applause Books). The Applause First Folio Editions compare the differences between the first printings and the best modern texts of Shakespeare's works, with special emphasis on issues relevant to each particular play. Footnotes discuss many of the Quarto and modern text variations. Glosses highlight scholarship of the last four centuries. New easy coding system guides readers directly to single topics far more swiftly and efficiently than comparable attempts in modern editions. New visual clues allow readers to explore First Folio line structures as well as the modern text alterations. Opposite each page of text is a blank page for reader notes and comments. Over one hundred professional and conservatory productions have already used Neil Freeman's scripts in early manuscript proof editions. Now, for the first time, Applause makes these invaluable texts available to actors, readers, and scholars around the world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The three individual plays launch the third edition of the venerable "Arden Shakespeare" series, which will see the entire canon reproduced in superior scholarly editions by the year 2000. The First Folio is a facsimile edition of the original 1623 publication of the bard's works.
William Shapkespeare's Henry V receives a gratifying full-cast narration and production which brings to life the underlying ironies and contrasts inherent in Shakespeare's play. The complete text here has been fully dramatized from the New Cambridge Shakespeare text and is truly outstanding.
