Shakespeare Folios

Each edition in the Shakespeare Folios series 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

'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
