Volume 1 of the new Everyman Shakespeare, published in 1992, included the four major tragedies: HAMLET, KING LEAR, OTHELLO and MACBETH. Volume 2 completes the survey of Shakespeare’s tragic output with ROMEO AND JULIET, JULIUS CAESAR, ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA, CORIOLANUS, TROILUS AND CRESSIDA and TITUS ANDRONICUS. The authoritatively edited texts of the plays are supplemented with extensive bibliographies, a chronology of Shakespear’s life and times and a substantial introduction in which Prosessor Tony Tanner examines Shakespeare’s evolution as a tragedian while also providing detailed discussions of the individual plays. This is the only two-volume edition of the tragedies with such comprehensive apparatus and it will eventually form part of a complete Shakespeare (plays and poems) in eight volumes.
