Subject:        Affordable Works

I support David Lindley's perfectly proper recommendation of the New
Cambridge series. Second hand - good fun to find - each can be picked up
for as little as a pound. The bonus is the marginalia. The drawback is
that the series is not complete. Five are in the process of being edited
and published: WT, LLL, 2 Noble K, Troilus and Cymb. I was given an
estimate of 2004+ as minimum completion dates in Cambridge last week. So
if any SHAKSPERean has time to spare............

Best wishes,
Graham Hall

Subject:        Annotated texts

As I understand it, the new regulation regarding annotated texts for
GCSE and A2 exams refers to annotations made by students themselves in
margins and at the bottom of pages.

In reality this will be good news for academics who have edited editions
of set texts because English Departments will, in all probability, be
forced to buy complete new sets of those books.  Incidentally, as far as
I know there is no plan to increase funding to schools and colleges to
offset the cost of replacing entire sets of books.

The Oxford is not annotated, and most candidates (if this denotes
aspirants to higher degrees) will possess more than one edition long
before time for exams.

All the best,
