Richard III, Paperback / softback Book

Richard III Paperback / softback

Edited by Nick De Somogyi

Paperback / softback

Description

This brand new edition accurately reproduces the First Folio of the plays of William Shakespeare (1623) letter for letter, dot for dot, but does so in modern type.

At a stroke, the dust of ages is blown away and what Shakespeare actually intended is revealed to modern readers.

With no editorial interference - but also with no quaint typographical quirks - Shakespeareans everywhere, students, actors, directors, can see for themselves what the Folio really says.

As a further aid to understanding, on each opposite page, the same text appears but this time in a fully modernised version.

This modern edition offers a useful safety net whenever the Folio becomes problematic.

Each volume, scrupulously edited by Shakespeare scholar Nick de Somogyi, also contains two introductions - one to the series, one to the particular play - textual notes, an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate, and a facsimile page from the First Folio.
