The Shakespeare Folios series – offering the absolute authenticity of the First Folio in a totally accessible form.

‘A quite wonderful idea… So blindingly obvious, I can’t understand why nobody had thought of it before. I will certainly use the texts myself’ – Peter Hall

This edition accurately reproduces the text of the Shakespeare First Folio (1623), but in modern type. At a stroke the dust of ages is blown away and what Shakespeare actually intended is revealed to modern readers.

Now Shakespeareans everywhere – students, actors, directors – can see for themselves what the Folio really says.

As a further aid to understanding, on each opposing page the same text appears in a fully modernised version – a useful safety net whenever the Folio becomes problematic.

Each volume also contains:
– an introduction to the particular play
– textual notes
– an appendix giving variant versions from the Quarto where appropriate
– a facsimile page from the First Folio
