William Shakespeare, "Shakespeare's Sonnets" (The Arden Shakespeare, 3rd Edition)
Edited by Katherine Duncan-Jones
Thomas Nelson Publishers | 3rd Edition | 1997 | ISBN: 017443474X | 504 pages | siPDF | 8.6 MB

This Arden edition of Shakespeare's sonnets is closely based on the 1609 Quarto. As Katherine Duncan-Jones demonstrates, this text was authorized by Shakespeare himself, and may be based on an authorial manuscript. The whole carefully-ordered sequence, including "A Lover's Complaint", is read in the context of Shakespeare's career and of the poems' historical setting within early Jacobean culture. A clear-eyed analysis of homoerotic elements in the sonnets puts an end to the century of homophobic readings initiated by Sir Sidney Lee in 1897. Succinct and accessible notes guide the reader through complex vocabulary and syntax, as well as the poems' literary and cultural background. For ease of reference, these are printed on the same page-opening as the text.

Renowned as Shakespeare's most boisterous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew is the tale of two young men—the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio—and the two sisters they meet in Padua. Lucentio falls in love with Bianca, the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola. But before they can marry, Bianca's formidable elder sister, Katherine, must be wed. Petruchio, interested only in the huge dowry, arranges to marry Katherine—against her will—and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable works.

Edited by Virginia Mason Vaughan & Alden T. Vaughan
Arden Shakespeare | 3rd Edition | 1999 | ISBN: 1903436087 | 386 pages | siPDF | 7.2 MB

The Tempest has long dazzled readers and audiences with its intricate blend of magic, music, humour, intrigue and tenderness, its vibrant but ambiguous central characters. As Virginia and Alden Vaughan show, in their wide-ranging new edition of this established favourite, such antithetical extremes exemplify the play’s endlessly arguable nature, its appeal to diverse eras and cultures.

Edited by Juliet Dusinberre
Arden Shakespeare | 3rd Edition | 2006 | ISBN: 1904271227 | 465 pages | siPDF | 8 MB

With its cross-dressed heroine, gender games and explorations of sexual ambivalence, its Forest of Arden and melancholy Jacques, As You Like It speaks directly to the twenty-first century. Juliet Dusinberre demonstrates that Rosalind’s authority in the play grows from new ideas about women and reveals that Shakespeare’s heroine reinvents herself for every age.

William Shakespeare, "Twelfth Night" (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)

William Shakespeare, "Twelfth Night" (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)
Edited by Elizabeth Story Donno
Cambridge University Press | 2004 | ISBN: 052153514X | 186 pages | siPDF | 7.5 MB

For this updated edition of Twelfth Night, Penny Gay has written a wholly new Introduction to this well-loved Shakespearean comedy. She stresses the play's theatricality, its elaborate linguistic games and its complex use of Ovidian myths. She analyses the play's delicate balance between romance and realism and its exploration of gender, sexuality and identity. In examining the stage history, Professor Gay suggests that contemporary critical theory could have much to offer twenty-first-century directors and actors. An updated reading list completes the edition.
