Edited by the eminent A.R. Braunmuller, this thorough edition of King John--the first scholarly edition in almost fifteen years--makes a significant contribution to the study of Shakespeare's works. Braunmuller offers a wide-ranging critical introduction, which focuses on the play's political relevance in Elizabethan England, its relationship to legal issues of the day, its treatment of women and families, and its overall aesthetic importance in Shakespeare's early career. He also provides a richly detailed stage history, full annotations that are especially sensitive to the play's language and staging, and an ample bibliographical study of the Folio (1623) text. The most comprehensive and up-to-date edition of King John currently available, this book is an invaluable resource for Shakespearean scholars, students, and theatergoers alike.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Book Description:

The play's political importance, rich and varied language and skillful design are analyzed through the examination of several disputed emendations to the text in this exhaustive stage history.

From the Back Cover:

Shakespeare's King John is a curious play in that it has no obvious villain or hero, though the King himself shares some of the qualities of both. From the point of view of a modern reader, brought up to regard the wresting of Magna Carta from King John as the most important event in his reign, Shakespeare's complete omission of any mention of this aspect of King John's struggle with the barons will also seem odd.
