About the funeral elegy:

David Bevington has been editing this poem for inclusion in his HarperCollins
edition of Shakespeare.

David Bevington is including the Funeral Elegy in the next edition of his
one-volume Shakespeare, published by Houghton Mifflin.  He completed the
annotations and introduction several months ago, but I don't believe the volume
is due to come out until next year at least.  I understand that Stephen
Greenblatt, who is editing the new Norton edition of Shakespeare (based on the
Oxford edition) is also planning to include the Elegy. I don't know about
Harper Collins.  I seem to remember hearing about another forthcoming edition
that will include the Elegy, but I can't remember what it was.
