Subject: Anthology Versus Paperbacks
I teach Shakespeare to undergraduate English majors. In past
years, I have required my students to purchase a one-volume
anthology: either Bevington's *Complete Works* or Evans'
*Riverside*. In the spring, I'm planning to use paperback
editions of individual plays for the first time. I would
appreciate any comments on the merits of an anthology versus
paperback editions. I am very aware of the theoretical and
political implications of using an anthology, but I would still
like to hear what others think on the matter.
