“A quite wonderful idea …So blindingly obvious, I can't understand why nobody had thought of it before. I will certainly use the texts myself. ”—Sir Peter Hall
This brand new edition accurately reproduces the First Folio of the plays of William Shakespeare letter for letter, dot for dot, but does so in modern type. As a further aid to understanding, on each opposite page, the same text appears, but this time in a fully modernized version. Each volume, scrupulously edited by Shakespeare scholar Nick de Somohyi, also contains two introductions, textual notes, an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate, and a fascimile page from the First Folio.
