This doesn't quite answer the question asked, but if your library has about
a cool four grand knocking about and nothing better to spend it on, I'd
recommend getting them to buy the Arden Shakespeare on CD. It has the full
text of the Arden 2, together with a facsimile of the First Folio and of
most of the quartos (2nd quartos too in some cases), plus Partridge,
Bullough's _Narrative & Dramatic Sources_ & much, much more.  It is fully
searchable and can even produce part books for performance.

A fine bit of kit, if you can afford it.

Otherwise, I'd say the print Arden is still hard to beat for all round
scholarly value; or the Oxford for a text that's adventurous. On the
cheaper end of things, my students seem to like the New Penguin texts, as a
sort of affordable but decent edition.

I don't agree! I that you are to critical. I think it's wonderful. that Ken
B. has taken Shakespeare further than anyone else. Just as I think it was
great that someone should appreciate Mozart when he was alive, it's easy to
praise these giants after they have died.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0219  Q: Harold Goddard

Simon Malloch asked about Harold Goddard.  I am a loyal fan of his work and
agree with Bloom that it makes a major and indispensable contribution to
modern Shakespeare criticism.  He has written another book that I think is
worthy of attention.  It is called ALPHABET OF THE IMAGINATION and contains
some of his thoughts on scripture, Blake, William James, Henry James,
Chaucer, Emerson, Whitman, and Russian literature.  His views always shed
new light for me on the subjects he scrutinizes.  The book was published by
Humanities Press, in New Jersey (Atlantic Highlands).  He also wrote a book
STUDIES IN NEW ENGLAND TRANSCENDENTALISM and a book called MORALE. You are
in for a very special treat if you are meeting Goddard for the first
time... or the second, or the third...
