Subject:        Editions

Hello, SHAKSPEReans,

I'm about to order an edition for my Shakespeare I class; but I've
discovered that the Riverside Shakespeare is about $60 now and the
Norton Shakespeare is $45.  I've used the Shakespeare twice over; but
now I'm feeling that this is quite a lot of money to ask undergraduates
to spend (because I also want them purchase the Bedford documentary book
as well).  I have used the Oxford collected Shakespeare once before (due
to its $25 price); but the students found that the binding did not hold
up over the term.  Has anyone used the Norton Shakespeare in class as
yet? Are the notes sufficient? I received a review copy but found the
pages too paper thin?  Has this proved a problem for anyone?

Respond off-line, if you wish.

Thanks, cg.
