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
University of Birmingham, UK
