Here is an elegant and clear text for either study or the rehearsal
room, notes where you need them, and the distinguished scholarship
of the general editors, A. R. Braunmuller and Stephen Orgel, who
understand that these are plays for performance as wellas great
texts for contemplation.
"The perfect companion to enjoy the most profound stories of the human condition that Shakespeare has given us and that I have had the privilege to perform, from Othello to King Lear.
--James Earl Jones
"Orgel and Braunmuller's editions of the Pelican
Shakespeare are an indispensable part of my library. These
introductions by great Shakespearean scholars are erudite yet
accessible, and the individual editions of the plays are perfect
for the rehearsal room. They combine scholastic precision with an
inspiring energy that fuels everyone making Shakespeare live
--Simon Godwin, Shakespeare Theatre Company and the National Theatre "I have been using the Pelican Shakespeare for years in my lecture course-it's invaluable."
