It is illustrated with photographs of performances chosen by RSC Directors. It is beautifully packaged, with clear, reader-friendly single-column page design on crisp white paper.

It is suitable for undergraduates or A-level students of Literature or Drama; lecturers or teachers of Literature or Drama.It is also suitable as birthday, christmas, wedding or graduation gifts. It is useful in Public Libraries, Academic Libraries, School Libraries.Developed in partnership with The Royal Shakespeare Company, this fresh new Complete Works combines the very latest scholarship with elegant writing and design. Leading the editorial team is renowned Shakespearean scholar Professor Jonathan Bate who has worked in close collaboration over many years with the artists and archivists at the RSC. His introductions and notes draw on a unique wealth of experience and resources and will help the reader to understand Shakespeare's plays as they were originally intended - as living theatre to be enjoyed and performed.

    bel tomo!

    Dice: Comprati un reader che ti leggi tutti i classici in ebook. Spendi un poco meno e occupi meno spazio. Facile a dirsi... Dei libri con testo inglese a fronte facilmente reperibili nelle librerie, non ne esistono in ebook. E se ne esistono, sono rari. Per tagliare la testa al toro, ho comprato l'edizione inglese completa dalla Royal Shakespeare Company, che ha eccelse recensioni ovunque. Cosi' quando voglio comprare il vecchio bardo in ebook, lo compro in italiano e mi leggo la versione inglese in cartaceo. Da consultazione.

    2° posto ex equo con omero nella storia della letteratura mondiale. Ho letto tutte le opere, alcune anche 2 o 3 volte e non mi stancherò mai di leggerle e rileggerle.
