    Folio, passages from Shakespeare's sources, dress laws, popular ballads, and more.

  • Revised chapter on Shakespeare's language makes this difficult subject even more accessible to today's students and includes a rich variety of examples drawn from Shakespeare's most widely taught plays.
  • Annotated appendix of the most useful Shakespeare Web sites helps students find additional documents and illustrations and aids their research.
