Description

The New Kittredge Shakespeare Cymbeline offers the text of the play, and glosses, as prepared by William Kittredge for his Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Hannah C. Wojciehowski's performance notes and additional textual notes offer readers a streamlined reading experience aimed at helping them understand the play and envision how key "interpretive junctures" in it have been, and might yet be, performed on stage or screen. Wojciehowski's Introduction brilliantly illuminates the play's plot and lyricism as well as its treatment in recent stage and screen productions--including Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline (2014). In "How to Read Cymbeline as Performance" an interview with James Loehlin, Director of the Shakespeare at Winedale program at the University of Texas, offers practical reflections on making the leap from reading this challenging play to imagining its performance. Notes on Names, Pronunciation, and Language; A Cymbeline Timeline; Topics for Discussion and Further Study; and Bibliography and Filmography are also included.show more

Review quote

"The New Kittredge series is both a delight and a steal. Kittredge's textual authority, updated by eminent scholars sensitive to classroom needs and alert to staging choices, is once again available in these slim, elegant, inexpensive, user-friendly volumes. With lucid notes and incisive introductions geared especially to popular film versions, the series also offers an overview of both stage and film performances of each play. A must for any Shakespeare class." --Laury Magnus, Contributing Editor, New Kittredge Shakespeare and Hamletworks.orgshow more
