The Two Noble Kinsmen Reviews


"An exemplary text, superbly edited with a most helpful introduction. The authorship question is excellently treated."--Margaret Loftus Ranald, Queens College, CUNY
"[An] excellent edition...This sturdily bound book is an extremely usable edition of a too little known play. All serious academic libraries will wish to have it."--Choice
Praise for the Oxford Shakespeare: "Every library supporting the study of Shakespeare on any level must have the new Oxford Shakespeare."--Choice
"The Oxford Shakespeare has followed the example of the New Ardens in printing collations and notes at the foot of each page rather than in appendices. Oxford, however, has improved upon the Ardens in the matter of typography and provides the most attractive and easiest to use single-play editions
of Shakespeare currently available."--The Shakespeare Bulletin
"Beautifully printed and easy to handle, each volume provides legible and useful footnotes, along with an introduction by an eminent scholar."--New York Times Book Review
