Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This handsome, deluxe volume is an absolute must for the bookshelf of every reader of the Bard. It contains all Shakespeare's plays and poetry, fully annotated.
Library Journal
This gorgeous, boxed, two-volume set includes the bard's full canon of plays supplemented with 50 illustrations as well as 40 pages of color and black-and-white plates, critical prefaces to each work, detailed notes on the texts, and many other goodies. This second edition also includes Edward III and "A Funeral Elegy," which scholars now believe to be written by old Will, as well as new essays on stage history and criticism. The appendixes, chronologies, and bibliographies have also been updated. Simply superb.
