Throughout the anthology, all sections are introduced with a clarity specifically designed for classroom teaching. Important discussion issues are outlined, along with sources for each play and the stage history of performances. This updated version retains thoughtful commentaries on individual lines and phrases and provides stage directions so students can visualize the plays. Notable changes to this edition include the addition of The Two Noble Kinsmen, a more detailed examination of Troilus and Cressida, and A Funeral Elegy - a poem recently proposed with considerable authority as written by Shakespeare."--Jacket
