The two noble kinsmen by John Fletcher( Book )

15 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the late twentieth century, when scholarly attention began to focus on sexuality, collaboration and Shakespeare's late plays, The Two Noble Kinsmen has become an essential script. Turner and Tatspaugh's edition presents a strong case for taking the play more seriously now than ever before. A lively introduction discusses Shakespeare's craftsmanship in adapting a medieval tale for the Jacobean stage, the extent of co-authorship with John Fletcher, the rhetorical complexity of Shakespeare's late style, the themes of sexuality and friendship, and contemporary critical responses to the play. In addition to presenting a detailed history of performance, the edition calls attention to productions that have demonstrated the play's theatrical vitality and solved - or failed to solve - difficulties inherent in the text. Bringing the textual history completely up to date, the edition reflects renewed interest in The Two Noble Kinsmen, confirming it as a play for today."

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's tragedy Romeo and Juliet was performed around 1595 and published in 1597 in a quarto claiming on its title page that it was printed by John Danter. The present volume is a photographic facsimile of this text, taken from the copy in the Huntington Library in California. The text reproduced here includes in the margins through-line numbering both for the Quarto and for the equivalent passages in the 1623 Folio, as well as a table that matches the Quarto pages and the line numbers with the act, scene, and line numbers of the Riverside Shakespeare."--BOOK JACKET

The editing of dramatic and other literary texts has always been an important aspect of literary studies. In recent years, editing and the theoretical frameworks that underlie editing practices have become a lively and controversial focus of debate, sparked both by philosophical discussions on 'the death of the author' and by the technological challenges presented by the possibilities of electroni

The antipodes by Richard Brome( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Antipodes, first published in 1640, is a "city comedy" by Richard Brome. Written in an age of travel and exploration, the play depicts the topsy-turvy "world upside down" of London in the 1630s. The plot hinges around the main character Peregrine's obsession with travel books. An inventive play-within-the-play, also called "The Antipodes", dupes Peregrine into believing that he has been transported to the ends of the earth, with the aim of recalling him to his marital duties. This is the only available single-play edition of this extraordinary Jacobean play
