Oxford Shakespeare: The Tragedy Of King Richard Iii Livro
This innovative edition of Richard III emphasizes the play as a theatre work, and this understanding informs every aspect of the editing. The choice of the 1597 quarto text brings us close to the play as it would have been performed in Shakespeare's theatre. The play's long performance history is described and illustrated in an introduction that is also responsive to recent historicist and gender-based critical approaches. The commentary gives full andbalanced treatment to matters of language, performance, text, and historical and cultural contexts.
