This is a new, three-volume edition of an anonymous Elizabethan history play that has intrigued Shakespeare scholars for more than a century. A set of Text and Variorum Notes meticulously records the variant readings of previous editors and provides relevant citations from contemporary sources and other analytic comments to clarify the play's meanings, concerns and thematic preoccupations. Among other features of this edition are an original conclusion in the Elizabethan manner (some lines of the final scene are missing), a book-length Introduction proving that Shakespeare wrote the play, and a 100-page supplement detailing over 1,600 echoes and parallels with the Collected Works. This work is a must for every Shakespearean collection.
