    Review quote
    'I found it more exciting than I should probably admit to at seeing the Shakespeare-rich layer of annotation underpinning the text on the page of a play - The Duchess of Malfi - that simply hasn't been treated in that way before, especially in terms of introductory matter.' Shakespeare Bookshop Newsletter (December 2009)
