Table of contents
the edition I want in my study, is Braunmuller's 'conventionally ordered', scholarly text.'
Virginia Mason Vaughan, Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts, Yearbook of English Studies, 1992 `The major strength of Professor Braunmuller's edition is its introduction. He offers a sane review of such difficult questions as the date of the play, and such controversial ones as its relation to "The Troublesome Reign". The evidence is marshalled in a lucid manner and sensible conclusions drawn ... This is a significant contribution to the (now quickly developing) debate on "King John", and a good demonstration that investigations of Shakespeare as a
political dramatist (as opposed to a moral stage) need not be critically reductive.'
The Review of English Studies 'This edition offers the most substantial & one of the most penetrating discussions of the play to date. A remarkable scholarly achievement.'
Dr Rene J.A. Weis, Department of English, University College, London The Oxford Shakespeare is an admirably scholarly edition, immaculately presented, offering close attention to possibilities of staging as well as meaning.'
Dr D. Sedge, Exeter University
