Why choose this Premium Scholar's Edition?
You all did love him once,—not without cause:
What cause withholds you, then, to mourn for him?—
O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason!—Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Cæsar,
And I must pause till it come back to me.
The CBy Shakespeare seeks to offer the best possible edition of each of Shakespeare’s plays, cramming in more material than has been seen in any other versions of the text. The Tragedy of Julius Cæsar contains the full, annotated Hudson text, two commentaries, two in-depth introductions, a discussion of Shakespeare’s metre, a host of appendices, the complete texts of Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (Shakespeare’s source material) concerning Cæsar, Brutus, Antony and Cicero, reproductions of the First Folio, Hazlitt and Morris’ full assessments of the play, as well as a biography of the playwright. In this as in all else, CBy strives towards a new benchmark of quality and comprehensiveness that must be considered unmatched throughout the academic world.

John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary.From the Publisher:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
