The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Fifth Edition

The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Fifth Edition
David M. Bevington
New York : Pearson Education, Inc., 2004
PR2754 .B4 2004

A balanced editorial approach, a highly respected editor, and proven apparatus combine to make Bevington the most student-friendly introduction to Shakespeare on the market.

The fifth edition of this comprehensive anthology addresses two key issues confronted by students approaching Shakespeare today: a lack of knowledge about the historical period and difficulty with the language of Shakespeare’s plays. Accessible introductions to each work and thoroughly revised and updated notes and glosses assist students unfamiliar with Shakespeare’s language. A lavishly illustrated General Introduction presents a vivid picture of life in Shakespeare’s England. Detailed background on sources and performance history connects the social world to the literary texts.
