The Winter's Tale

By William Shakespeare
Edited by Nick de Somogyi
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854595812, 292 pages, March 2011


This edition accurately reproduces the text of the Shakespeare First Folio (1623), but in modern type. At a stroke the dust of ages is blown away and what Shakespeare actually intended is revealed to modern readers. Now Shakespeareans everywhere - students, actors, directors - can see for themselves what the Folio really says. As a further aid to understanding, on each opposing page the same text appears in a fully modernised version - a useful safety net whenever the Folio becomes problematic. Each volume also contains:- an introduction to the particular play- textual notes- an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate- a facsimile page from the First Folio
