Subject: 14.0824 Critique of the Arden Editions?
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0824 Critique of the Arden Editions?

Tue:

I rely primarily on the Arden editions because of their rich footnotes.
But I also like the Signet Classic editions for their fine selection of
criticisms at the back, and the "Shakespeare: An Overview" at the front
of the newer (gold banded) Signet Classics is probably the best short
article on Shakespeare I have ever read.

Aloha,
Dave Johnson

It may not be exactly what Professor Lawrence has in mind, but my
current Shakespeare "toy" is the first folio on a CD-ROM distributed
from Octavo.com. I'm no computer whiz, but I find it user-friendly and
useful.  I anticipate using it as a resource when I teach Shakespeare
next year.

On that point, I'd be interested in hearing from others how they have
used the CD in or for their classes.
