62 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1960. Patterns in Shakespearian Tragedy is an exploration of man's relation to his universe and the way in which it seeks to postulate a moral order.

His movement from play to play is carefully explored, and in the treatment of each tragedy the emphasis is on the manner in which its central moral theme shapes the various elements of drama

The tragedy of Hamlet, prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare( Book )

15 editions published between 1964 and 1984 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first quarto of Hamlet is radically different from the second quarto and Folio versions of the play, and about half their length. But despite its uneven verbal texture and simpler characterisation, the first quarto presents its own workable alternatives to the longer texts, reordering and combining key plot elements, and even including a unique scene between Horatio and the Queen. This new critical edition is designed for students, scholars and actors who are intrigued by the first printed text of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Although the first quarto has been reprinted many times, there is no other modernised edition in print. Irace's introduction outlines views of its origins, its special features, and its surprisingly rich performance history; her textual notes point out differences between the first quarto and the longer second quarto and Folio versions and offer alternatives which actors or directors might choose for specific productions"--Added title page

"The Complete Works of Shakespeare, now in its updated fourth edition, continues to present the text of Shakespeare as an enjoyable and fruitful experience for students and teachers alike. David Bevington, the current president of the Shakespeare Association of America, is widely recognized for his contributions to the field of Shakespearean scholarship. 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

5 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition, Charles Forker provides the most complete and detailed edition of Edward II ever published."--BOOK JACKET. "The introduction contains a fresh analysis of the first quarto (including new evidence of its original dating) and a reconsideration of the play's complex relation to the Shakespearean histories that preceded and followed it. Charles Forker offers a fascinating and far-reaching discussion of Marlowe's use of sources, and presents a new argument for the drama's five-act structure. He delves into the conflicting and controversial opinions concerning the genre and sexual politics of the play, and also includes the fullest record of the stage history ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET. "With meticulous scholarship, Forker has collated some forty-six editions (including the important, rare, and usually ignored editions of Broughton and Oxberry in 1818). The appendices provide substantive variants from the Broughton and Oxberry texts as well as generous extracts from the sources. This edition will stand as the definitive scholarly text for Marlowe's most provocative play for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
