More About the Author

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.

Strange and violent, I wasn't expecting this from Shakespeare--no doubt Middleton's influence. Absolutely must see now how it works on stage. This Arden edition also boasts a superb introduction.

Best critical apparatus 26 Oct. 2014
By Brontina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In my opinion, the Arden Shakespeare is the best edition for the Bard's works. The critical apparatus is exhaustive and you really read the play with more awareness of what happens.

Now a new book? 20 Nov. 2014
By Scott Yarberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was indicated that was new but had a large ink blot on the bottom of the book, which I thought indicates that the book is used.

The book itself is wonderful though. 27 Oct. 2014
By Ben Stanford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Was disappointing to see that the pages had been bent, and in some cases torn during transit. The book itself is wonderful though.
