"For this updated edition, Alexander Leggatt has written a wholly new introduction to Russell Fraser's edition of one of Shakespeare's most puzzling, ambiguous and demanding plays. Leggatt's interest in performance informs his introduction and his account of the instability of the main characters. He offers a full, illustrated and thoughtful account of the play's critical and theatrical fortunes to the end of the twentieth century, and of our experience as an audience of seeing and hearing it performed. An updated reading list completes the edition."--Jacket

Drama of the English Renaissance( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forty-one plays gathered in these volumes constitute the most extensive new survey of Renaissance drama in over forty years, and reflect both changes in taste and advances in scholarship since earlier collections. The editors have attempted to provide the materials for a truer view of the theater in which Shakespeare worked than has hiterto been possible in anthologies. Marlowe, Jonson, and Webster, by most accounts the best of Shakepare's contemporaries, are reporesented by their major plays. -- Preface

Singing masters : poets in English, 1500 to the present by Russell A Fraser( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Singing Masters is a book for connoisseurs of poetry. It spans five centuries of verse in English but is in no way a literary history or encyclopedic survey of the genre. It is instead a celebration of the poetry that has most delighted, engaged, and challenged one man in his long and distinguished career as literary scholar and critic."--Jacket

Moderns worth keeping by Russell A Fraser( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new volume, Russell Fraser assembles fourteen twentieth-century writers he judges "worth keeping." All were famous in their time, but many outlived it, enduring an eclipse that Fraser intends this book to dispel. Each of the authors differs in background and in the kinds of writing practiced, and while together they do not constitute a modern canon, Fraser persuasively presents them as a group distinguished by a more than ordinary affiliation for language."
