RSC William Shakespeare Complete Works
The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) Shakespeare. A monumental work. "This edition of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare was commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. It combines the very latest textual scholarship with illuminating insights into how Shakespeare's plays were and are performed. The edition includes a range of features to help you engage with Shakespeare's text: notes on each page, photographs, thought-provoking essays on each play, a 'key facts' box for each play, chronologies and a genealogy, & access to an accompanying website. A definitive modernized edition of Shakespeare's text based on the 1623 First Folio (the first and original Complete Works lovingly assembled by Shakespeare's fellow actors and the version of Shakespeare's text preferred by many actors and directors today)." Includes preface, general introduction, user's guide, preliminary pages of the first folio, foreword, plates, followed by complete plays in sections (comedies, histories, tragedies), which is followed by plays not in the first folio, poems & sonnets, a scene for Sir Thomas More, charts with chronologies, plus alphabetical list of plays & poems. Edited by Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen.
