Available in a single volume, The Arden Shakespeare Complete Works contains the Arden texts for all Shakespeare's plays, including The Two Noble Kinsmen and the Poems and Sonnets.Brief introductions to each play, written specially for this volume by the three Arden Shakespeare General Editors, discuss the date and contemporary context of the work, its position within Shakespeare's oeuvre, and, for each play, its subsequent performance history. An extensive glossary explains vocabulary which may be unfamiliar to twentieth-century readers.A general introduction, also by the Arden General Editors, discusses how and why Shakespeare has become such an influential cultural icon, and how perceptions of his work have changed in the intervening four centuries. The introduction also gives us an overview of the known facts about the dramatist's life, his reading and use of sources and the nature of theatrical performances during his lifetime.
