The tragedy of Cymbeline by William Shakespeare( Book )

4 editions published between 1773 and 1823 in English and held by 21 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
