Product Information

  • The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to readers worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance. The series, edited by an expert international team, includes all Shakespeare's plays, sonnets and poems, presented in attractively designed volumes.
  • Modernised texts
  • Full notes and lively introductions
  • Informative illustrations
  • Precise details of staging and performance
  • Much Ado has always been popular on the stage.
  • This edition pays especial attention to the history and range of theatrical interpretation, in which the most famous actors, from the time of Garrick to the present, have appeared as the sparring lovers Benedick and Beatice.
  • A full commentary includes annotation of the many sexual jokes in the play that have been obscured by the complexity of Elizabethan language.
  • For this updated edition Angela Stock has added a new section to the Introduction in which she reviews the romantic and the darker, more cynical aspects of the play in the light of late twentieth-century stage, film and critical interpretations.
  • She also tackles the interesting question of Beatice's proper age and the critical fortunes of Hero and Claudio in terms of the play's interest in sexuality and misogyny, eavesdropping and deception.
