I'm reasonably sure that each editor of either The Works or an
individual play considers his or her edition definitive. The problem of
definition is, at the very least, ongoing. In my opinion, you'd do well
to have the Oxford complete works on hand, and as many of the Arden and
New Variorum single volumes as you can obtain.
