Revels Plays MUP

  • The best edition of the play in print
  • Gives a radical re-examination of the manuscript, and relates step by step to the process by which the play acquired its final form
  • Accounts for every single word and mark found in the manuscript - reproduces rejected or alternative passages at the end of the text
  • Includes a detailed discussion of the authorship and date of the original text and so-called additions
  • Particularly important now as the play feeds into the present speculation concerning Shakespeare's Catholic roots
