Review quote

Halio gives a useful historical summary of the split from Rome Years Work in English Studies Textual apparatus is of a high standard ... the commentary provides succinct notes on chronological and historical detail, pointed reference to sources used and works that supplement the playwrights' sources, and a comprehensive gloss to problematic words and phrases usefully keyed to a separate index. This is an excellent edition for undergraduate study: the introduction works to consolidate previous critical approaches without itself ever offering restrictive pronouncements on how to read the play, while the text and commentary are set out in a clear, uncrowded manner. Attention to the working needs of the student is evident throughout Matthew Woodcock, University College, Oxford, Sixteenth Century Journal XXXII/1 (2001)
