A revised edition with a new 10,000 word essay by world-renowned Shakespearean Jonathan Bate, rethinking his view on the authorship of the play and updating its performance history.
Jonathan Bate is Professor of Literature and Provost of Worcester College, University of Oxford, UK.
A revised version that takes deeper account of George Peele's possible coauthorship and discusses the surge in performances of the play over the past two decades, including Julie Taymor's film and Lucy Bailey's visceral Globe production. Bate's lucid and unstinting 1995 edition has been a mainstay in the classroom, and it is a relief to find that work augmented instead of replaced in this excellent update. * Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 *
