    William Shakespeare(Author)
This tragi-comedy is one of the plays we know Shakespeare worked with a collaborator on -- John Fletcher -- and is based on Chaucer's Knight's Tale. This revised edition includes a new introductory essay bringing the edition up-to-date in terms of both the play's performance and critical history, and in particular with current thinking about the nature of Shakespeare's collaboration with other playwrights. As scholars have begun to discover more about this aspect of his career, interest in the play has grown. This revised edition is ideal for undergraduate study, offering on-page annotations to the play text as well as a lengthy, illustrated introduction.

Lois Potter is Ned B. Allen Professor of English in the English Department at the University of Delaware, USA.

    Read this in preparation for watching a performance of the play in Stratford, as I was unfamiliar with this work by Shakespeare and Fletcher. Typically, a play with more than one plot which did link, but perhaps not as smoothly, owing to a dual authorship; Shakespeare having written only the first and last acts.

    Haven't read it yet but on dipping into it it doesn't 'feel' very Shakesperian. Usual excellent Arden standards I assume as regards editing and textual analysis Nice to handle - those of us who grew up with that awful binding in the seventies have nothing to fear here - shouldn't fall apart..
