Product Description

This is among Shakespeare’s most vivid dramatic projections of moral duplicity.

The introduction discusses the origins of his treatment of the well-known story and examines his sources. The editor also sets the play in its historical context and offers the most comprehensive available account of the text’s theatrical life from Restoration adaptations to present-day productions.
