The second part of King Henry IV by William Shakespeare( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Melchiori sees 'The Second Part of King Henry IV' as an unplanned sequel to the First Part, deliberately exploiting the popular success of Sir John Falstaff, introduced in Part One. The resulting rich humour gives a comic dimension to the play whi

King Edward III by William Shakespeare( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward III is a major addition to the Shakespearean canon, and is published here for the first time in an authoritative edition of Shakespeare's works. Presenting this fully-annotated, modern-spelling text of Edward III, Giorgio Melchiori does not claim that Shakespeare is the sole author, but author of a significant part of the play, the extent of which is discussed in detail. The introduction explores the historical background and the genesis of the play in the context of contemporary theatrical practice and of Shakespeare's own early cycle of history plays. It stresses the original ideological stance and the theatrical qualities of the play as a whole. The commentary examines in depth the play's linguistic and poetical features, while an extensive appendix on the use of sources explains the stages of its composition

Sir John Falstaff, knowing that Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Page control the money in their respective households, decides to seduce them, but they learn of his scheme and resolve to make a fool of him. A comic series of disguises and misadventures follows

Sir Thomas More : a play by William Shakespeare( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Elizabethan play by Anthony Munday and others that depicts the life of Thomas More. It survives only in a single manuscript, now owned by the British Library. Its main claim to fame is that three pages of it may have been written by William Shakespeare's hand, but the manuscript is also important for what it reveals about censorship of Elizabethan drama
Shakespeare's garter plays : Edward III to Merry wives of Windsor by Giorgio Melchiori( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A chapter in this work is devoted to a reconstruction of the one-play version of Henry IV and another to the passages presumably added in the rewriting

Italian studies in Shakespeare and his contemporaries( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers collected in this volume set out to present some significant Italian contributions to Shakespeare studies that, scattered through a number of publications not available outside Italy, might have escaped the attention they deserve. They are representative, though by no means exhaustively, of approaches to Shakespeare and his contemporaries in Italy, and may convey a sense of the vitality and extreme variety of critical and scholarly attitudes in this field."--Jacket

Ulisse by James Joyce( Book )

24 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in Italian and English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

È il racconto degli avvenimenti vissuti nel corso di una giornata da Leopold Bloom e Stephen Dedalus a Dublino, in un vagabondaggio che ripercorre le tappe dell'Odissea. Episodi, scene e fatti sono costruiti con più o meno evidente parallelismo rispetto all'opera omerica. Il romanzo però non si esaurisce in questo, vuole essere anche una "summa" di tutti gli aspetti dell'uomo moderno e dei suoi rapporti con la società
