Overview

This vibrant, complete Shakespeare brings readers closer than ever before to Shakespeare's plays as they were first acted. Based on the freshly edited texts of the Oxford Edition, the most far-reaching and innovative revision of the traditional canon in centuries, The Norton Shakespeare invites readers to rediscover Shakespeare. Opening the volume is Stephen Greenblatt's General Introduction, a richly textured portrait of Shakespeare's work and world. The introduction, marginal glosses, and annotation that accompany each text greatly aid understanding of the plays and poems, and an elegant, single-column page makes reading them a pleasure.

As an educator who has used several editions of the complete plays for teaching, I recommend this edition both for its well-edited versions of the plays and for its up-to-date, informative introductions.

This is probably the best textbook I have ever used. It is very informative on the plays as well as on the culture and times of Shakespeare's world. As a theatre major, I definitely recommend this to anybody with even a nominal interest in the Elizebethan, Jacobean, and Carolignian theatre.
