Overview

John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work is available both individually and as a set, and each contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary printed at the back. The edition, which began with The Tempest and ended with The Sonnets, put into practice the techniques and theories that had evolved under the 'New Bibliography'. Remarkably by today's standards, although it took the best part of half a century to produce, the New Shakespeare involved only a small band of editors besides Dover Wilson himself. As the volumes took shape, many of Dover Wilson's textual methods acquired general acceptance and became an established part of later editorial practice, for example in the Arden and New Cambridge Shakespeares.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This must be a case of opposites attracting, as Yale releases another duo in its ongoing annotated Shakespeare series. Here the Bard's heaviest drama is paired with one of his lightest comedies. These also include textual notes, essays by Harold Bloom, and other extras. Great for the price.

In that same place thou hast appointed me, To-morrow truly will I meet with thee. Lys. Keep promise, love. Look, here comes Helena. Enter Helena. Her. God-speed fair Helena! Whither away? Hel. Call you me fair? that fair again unsay. Demetrius loves your fair. Oh, happy fair ! Your eyes are lode-stars; and your tongue's sweet air More tunable than lark to shepherd's ear When wheat is green, when hawthorn buds appear. Sickness is catching; oh, were favour so, Yours would I catch, fair Hermia, ere I go. My ear should catch your voice, my eye your eye; My tongue should catch your tongue's sweet melody. Were the world mine, Demetrius being bated, The rest I'll give to be to you translated. Oh, teach me how you look, and with what art You sway the motion of Demetrius' heart. Her. I frown upon him, yet he loves me still. Hel. Oh, that your frowns would teach my smiles such skill! Her. I give him curses, yet he gives me love. Hel. Oh, that my prayers could such affection move ! Her. The more I hate, the more he follows me. Hel. The more I love, the more he hateth me. Her. His folly, Helena, is no fault of mine. Hel. None but your beauty; would that fault were mine! Her. Take comfort; he no more shall see my face ; Lysander and myself will fly this place. Before the time I did Lysander see, Seem'd Athens like a paradise to me. Oh, then, what graces in my love do dwell, That he hath turn'd a heaven into hell! Lys. Helen, to you our minds we will unfold: To-morrow night, when Phoebe doth behold Her silver visage in the wat'ry glass, Decking with liquid pearl the bladed grass Plate i ENTKR THESEUS Midsummer-Night's Dream, art i.. seen? i. (A time that lovers' flights doth still conceal),Through Athens' gates have we devised to steal. ...

"Why am I here?" Delaney asked herself as she leaned back against a wall, far from the actual ball. Delaney looked uncomfortable in her dress, which was a sparkling blue that hugged her upper figure, and flitted out in folds from her waist down. She glanced around as she folded her arms across her chest with a grimace.

I strut over to Calla and slip an arm around her shoulders, leaning against her casually, "So what's up with you Missy?" I smirk and look around
