Readers will also find detailed commentary on individual words and phrases, and selections from Shakespeare's sources.

About the Author:


David Bevington is Professor of English at the University of Chicago.

Review:

`a pleasing emphasis on the plays in preformance. Both texts have very helpful notes, which contain all the supporting information a student is likely to need, presented clearly and interestingly - no small feat.' David Webb, St Martin's College, Lancaster.

`The Oxford Shakespeare is without doubt an important publishing event ... a complete rethinking of Shakespeare scholarship, textual, critical, and stage history all to be considered afresh with the aid of the most up-to-date knowledge and research resources ... a workman-like survey of most of what has been known and thought about the play up to the time of going to press' Joan Rees, University of Birmingham, Review of English Studies, Vol. 38 No. 155

`Professor Bevington has compiled in this attractively produced volume the best critical edition of Henry IV currently available' Michael G. Brennan, University of Leeds, Music and Queries
