Available for the first time in a single handy paperback, the acclaimed Oxford Shakespeare Complete Works presents a modernized and entirely re-edited text of all the plays and poems. All the original documents have been re-examined in every detail, and edited according to the most up-to-date findings of textual scholarship. On its first publication in hardback, critics called it 'the most ambitious edition of the works ever attempted' ( Times Higher Education Supplement ), and 'the most interesting edition of Shakespeare since the First Folio ...here are the plays as they were acted by Shakespeare's company' (John Carey, Sunday Times ). This book is intended for students at school and university level.
