This new and innovative edition recognizes the plays pre-eminence as a performance work: a perspective that informs every aspect of the editing.

Challenging traditional practice, the text is based on the 1597 Quarto which, it is argued, brings us closest to the play as it would have been staged in Shakespeares theatre. The introduction, which is illustrated, explores the long performance history from Shakespeares time to the present. Its critical engagement with the play responds to recent historicist and gender-based approaches.

The commentary gives detailed explication of matters of language, staging, text, and historical and cultural contexts, providing coverage that is both carefully balanced and alert to nuance of meaning. Documentation of the extensive textual variants is organized for maximum clarity: the readings of the Folio and the Quarto are presented in separate banks, and more specialist information is given at the back of the book.

Appendices also include selected passages from the main source and a special index of actors and other theatrical personnel.
