This Oxfordian Shakespeare Series presents for the first time fully annotated editions informed by the view that the plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th earl of Oxford—a view that reveals their true meaning and significance not only for his contemporaries but also for today’s readers and playgoers. Taking advantage of almost a century of Oxfordian scholarship as well as traditional scholarship, the editors show how Oxford, like all great writers, drew on his own life experience and his times. The editions reward the reader with a new and profound appreciation of the plays as the works of a controversial nobleman in Queen Elizabeth’s court who wrote under the pen name William Shakespeare. Lovers of Shakespeare will want to see how this Oxfordian perspective informs and illuminates the plays. Plays in this Oxfordian Shakespeare Series, and their editors, include: Macbeth, Richard F. Whalen, co-general editor of the series Othello, Ren Draya, Blackburn College Antony and Cleopatra, Michael Delahoyde, Washington State University Hamlet, Jack Shuttleworth, English Department, U.S. Air Force Academy (ret.)
