110 editions published between 1916 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introd., after a bibliographic description of the early editions, discusses the evidence for date, authorship & source, & deals briefly with the relation of the play to Shakespeare's more mature tragedies & to classical models
The life of King Henry the Eighth by William Shakespeare( Book )

43 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first fully annotated and comprehensive modern-spelling edition of King Henry VIII - known in its early performances as All is True - for over ten years. It makes full use of current scholarship on the dating, authorship, printing, and sources of the play, as well as critical interpretations, and includes an up-to-date survey of the play in performance. It is the first edition to make frequent use of Cavendish's life of Cardinal Wolsey, which seems likely to have influenced certain aspects of the play, as well as the other recognized sources in Holinshed, Hall, and Foxe." "On authorship, the editor concludes that Shakespeare and his younger colleague John Fletcher worked on the script together but that Shakespeare was probably the guiding spirit, as well as the principal author of several major scenes." "A fully detailed commentary and a selective collation of major variant readings appear immediately beneath the text. Special attention has been given to the frequent allusion to scripture and proverb lore. An index to all words glossed and authorities cited appears at the end of the volume."--Jacket
The tragedy of Cymbeline by William Shakespeare( Book )

29 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale edition of Cymbeline for thirty-seven years. Based firmly on Roger Warren's extensive experience of the play in rehearsal and performance, this edition shows how Shakespeare draws upon a wide range of sources to create a self-sufficient dramatic universe, combining virtuoso theatrical and poetic means to present a story of a marriage imperilled by mistrust and painfully rebuilt through the physical and spiritual journeys undertaken by the heroine and hero, set in a context of international conflict. A full and detailed commentary pays close attention to the play's complex, evocative language
Pericles by William Shakespeare( Book )

26 editions published between 1956 and 2009 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Shakespeare's late great romance plays driven by a sequence of strange events, marked by miraculous reunions of parents and children, husbands and wives, who have long been believed dead
The poems by William Shakespeare( Book )

30 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work is available both individually and as a set, and each contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary printed at the back. The edition, which began with The Tempest and ended with The Sonnets, put into practice the techniques and theories that had evolved under the 'New Bibliography'. Remarkably by today's standards, although it took the best part of half a century to produce, the New Shakespeare involved only a small band of editors besides Dover Wilson himself. As the volumes took shape, many of Dover Wilson's textual methods acquired general acceptance and became an established part of later editorial practice, for example in the Arden and New Cambridge Shakespeares
The prelude : a parallel text by William Wordsworth( Book )

55 editions published between 1971 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wordsworth's great autobiographical poem, subtitled "Growth of a poet's mind", was completed in 1805-6. During the rest of his life his interest in the work persisted, and the poem was several times revised, to be published soon after his death in 1850. Originally intended as the first part of a massive three-part poem, "The prelude" contains some of the greatest poetry Wordsworth wrote on those events and feelings of his youth which lie behind so much of his most powerful work
The life of Timon of Athens by William Shakespeare( Book )

22 editions published between 1957 and 1988 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's play about a noble Athenian who finds himself in financial difficulties and discovers that the friends who used to fawn on him now refuse to help him.

Alcibiades negotiates peace, but Timon dies alone in his cave
