William Shakespeare: The Critical Heritage - Vol. 6

By Brian Vickers | Go to book overview

Note on the Text

The texts in this collection are taken from the first printed edition, unless otherwise stated. The date under which a piece is filed is that of the first edition, with two exceptions: plays, for which, usually, the first performance is used (for such information I have relied on The London Stage for the period 1660 to 1800); and those works for which the author gives a date of composition substantially earlier than its first printing. The place of publication is London, unless otherwise indicated.

Spelling and punctuation are those of the original editions except where they seemed likely to create ambiguities for the modern reader. Spelling has, however, been standardized for writers’ names (Jonson not Johnson, Rymer not Rhimer), for play titles, and for Shakespearian characters.

Omissions in the text are indicated by three dots: […].

Footnotes intended by the original authors are distinguished with an asterisk, dagger, and so on; those added by the editor are numbered. Editorial notes within the text are placed within square brackets.

Act-, scene-, and line-numbers have been supplied in all quotations from Shakespeare, in the form 2.1.85 (Act II, scene 1, line 85). The text used for this purpose was The Riverside Shakespeare, ed. G.B. Evans (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1974).

Classical quotations have been identified, and translations added, usually those in the Loeb Library.
