Hamlet  

Shakesepare Folios

Hamlet $27.26 ex GST
$29.99 inc GST

Another title in the pioneering Shakespeare Folios series—offering the absolute authenticity of the First Folio in a totally accessible form. 

This brand new edition accurately reproduces the First Folio of the plays of William Shakespeare (1623), 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. Now 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 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.

Review
'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
