Description

Based on Chaucer's Knight's Tale, the central themes of this humourous and moving play are the claims of love and friendship. The introduction to this new edition offers an illuminating account of Shakespeare's collaboration with his younger colleague John Fletcher, and there are full and helpful notes on unfamiliar words, stage business, allusions, and the play's often complex language.show more

Review quote

"An exemplary text, superbly edited with a most helpful introduction. The authorship question is excellently treated."--Margaret Loftus Ranald, Queens College, CUNY "[An] excellent edition...This sturdily bound book is an extremely usable edition of a too little known play. All serious academic libraries will wish to have it."--Choice Praise for the Oxford Shakespeare: "Every library supporting the study of Shakespeare on any level must have the new Oxford Shakespeare."--Choice "The Oxford Shakespeare has followed the example of the New Ardens in printing collations and notes at the foot of each page rather than in appendices. Oxford, however, has improved upon the Ardens in the matter of typography and provides the most attractive and easiest to use single-play editions of Shakespeare currently available."--The Shakespeare Bulletin "Beautifully printed and easy to handle, each volume provides legible and useful footnotes, along with an introduction by an eminent scholar."--New York Times Book Review "An exemplary text, superbly edited with a most helpful introduction.
