After more than a generation and despite its many imitators, The Riverside Shakespeare remains the Shakespeare of choice for scholars and general readers alike. Recently revised to reflect the last quarter century of literary scholarship, it is now available in a deluxe edition - two volumes, bound in full cloth, in a handsome, four-color slipcase. The new, revised version of The Riverside Shakespeare retains all the features that made the first edition so popular - the invaluable notes, the wide-ranging introduction, and the brilliant critical prefaces to the individual works. Additions include the history play Edward IIIand the poem "A Funeral Elegy," both recently claimed for Shakespeare by computer-aided textual analysis. The original appendices have been updated and expanded and are joined by two new essays, "Twentieth-Century Shakespeare Criticism" and "Shakespeare's Plays in Performance: From 1970," the latter accompanied by eight pages of full-color photographs.

This gorgeous, boxed, two-volume set includes the bard's full canon of plays supplemented with 50 illustrations as well as 40 pages of color and black-and-white plates, critical prefaces to each work, detailed notes on the texts, and many other goodies. This second edition also includes Edward III and "A Funeral Elegy," which scholars now believe to be written by old Will, as well as new essays on stage history and criticism. The appendixes, chronologies, and bibliographies have also been updated. Simply superb.
