  • &&LB&&RNew Scholarship&&L/B&&R – Premiere scholars introduce each play with contemporary scholarship. An essay on editing the text provides an in-depth look at the quartos and folios used in the edition.

  • &&LB&&RFurther Reading&&L/B&&R – An annotated bibliography of titles, hand-selected by the introduction author, takes readers beyond the edition for further reading.
