Collins Complete Works of Shakespeare Summary


Collins Complete Works of Shakespeare by William Shakespeare

"The Alexander Text of the Complete Works of Shakespeare" is one of the most authoritative editions and is recognized the world over for its clarity and scholarship. New to this edition is an internet resources section, providing details of the most useful Shakespeare web sites. In addition, the invaluable glossary of over 2500 entries, explaining the meaning of obsolete words and phrases (complete with line references) has been expanded and redesigned to make it much easier to use. "The Complete Works" contains the recognized canon of Shakespeare's plays and his sonnets and poems. The texts were edited by the late Professor Peter Alexander and have long been recognized as a supreme example of the editors' art (indeed it was this text that the BBC used as the basis of its televised cycle of plays). The book starts with two specially written articles - a biography of Shakespeare by Germaine Greer, and a wide-ranging introduction to Shakespeare theatre by the late Anthony Burgess. Each play is also introduced by academics from Glasgow University, where Professor Alexander undertook his editing.
