"Volumes 1 through 10 of the series present a unique historical overview of the critical response to each Shakespearean work, representing a broad range of interpretations. Volumes 11 through 26 recount the performance history of Shakespeare's plays on th stage and screen through eyewitness reviews and retrospective evaluations of individual productions, comparisons of major interpretations, and discussions of staging issues. Beginning with Volume 27 in the series, SC focuses on criticism published after 1960, with a view to providing the reader with the most significant modern critical approaches. Each of these volumes is organized around a theme that is central to the study of Shakespeare, such as politics, religion, or sexuality." [Scope of the Series note, vol. 37.]
