This reissed edition of Longman Annotated Texts King Lear includes comprehensive notes, annotations and an introduction, all designed to be of use to undergraduates and interested readers. King Lear is one of Shakespeare's most widely studied tragedies. However, since the late 1970s textual scholars, critics and editors have argued that there is no single 'King Lear' text. Anyone studying the play needs to be aware of two different texts, one based on the quarto of 1608, The History of King Lear, and a revised version published in the first folio of 1623, The Tragedy of King Lear. This edition offers a fully annotated, modern spelling version of the texts set side by side, identifying and elucidating the major discrepancies between the two. It presents some possible reasons for the differences between the two texts, which themselves shed light on a number of issues relating to literary transmission in the Renaissance and give an insight into the nature of performance and censorship.

Titus Andronicus

ISBN: 1904271146
Release Date: 1995-03-16
Genre: Drama

After centuries of vilification and neglect by both scholars and actors, Titus Andronicus has at last come to be recognized as one of ShakespeareÂ's early masterpieces. In this powerful and ground-breaking edition, Bate offers a complete and radical reappraisal of ShakespeareÂ's bloodiest tragedy, seeing it as one of the dramatistÂ's most inventive plays, a complex and self-conscious improvisation upon classical sources. BateÂ's introduction does full justice to the playÂ's artfulness and sophistication, puts forward new arguments regarding the playÂ's date, sources and early stage history, and devotes extended discussion to great modern productions such as those of Peter Brook and Deborah Warner. In an age in which dramatic representation of violence has become an issue of enormous controversy, Titus Andronicus is the essential play; BateÂ's seminal edition indicates just how far, with this early work, the young Shakespeare has already travelled towards the masterpiece of his maturity, King Lear. 'Â…a great edition of a great play' Julie Taymor, Director TITUS, 20th Century Fox, 1999 "Bate makes a really positive virtue of his treatment of the play in performance...putting a vigorous account of Titus on stage at very stage-centre in his Introduction. Using this section as a means for raising fundamental questions as to the playÂ's style, coherence, and meaning, Bate achieves a remarkable fusion between performance history and criticism." John Jowett, Shakespeare Survey 'Â…impressive and excitingÂ…' Barry Gaines, University of New Mexico, Shakespeare Quarterly 'This is an outstanding edition of Titus, especially for its treatment of textual questions and of recent performance history. It supersedes all previous editions' Dr P Hartle, St Catherines College, Cambridge

William Shakespeares King Lear in seinen Fassungen

Genre: Literary Criticism

In the recent past, the reassessment of the transmission situation with regard to Shakespeare's »King Lear« has spawned numerous single editions of the various versions of the play. Proceeding from a discussion of the transmission problems, the editorial history, and present-day editorial practice, the study undertakes a comprehensive reconception of the methodological foundations of version editing in connection with »King Lear«. The discussion of the theoretical editing problems involved produces an outline for a hypermedia edition that departs from traditional norms in its design of reader text, navigation structure, and reference system. An integral part of the study is an electronic component accessible on the internet (www.niemeyer.de/links/link_material.html), which illustrates the editorial and media-theoretical premises with reference to a newly edited portion of the text.
