I like Stephen Orgel's 1996 introduction to his Oxford edition -- very 
illuminating from a number of perspectives. Anything by him or Roger 
Warren I find good on TWT (and the late plays in general). Perhaps also 
Roger Warren's _Staging Shakespeare's Late Plays_ if you'd like a 
performance/theatrical perspective?

Good luck,
