"The New Folger is an edition that all serious Shakespeare students will want to read and accumulate, and one that many teachers of Shakespeare will surely judge the best available." -- The Shakespeare Newsletter The havoc wrought on lovers by magic in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the furious battle of the sexes waged in "The Taming of the Shrew," and a stranded woman finding her way in a man's world in "Twelfth Night" -- this collection of three of Shakespeare's greatest comedies is based on the acclaimed individual Folger editions of the plays. The present volume offers accurate texts in modern spelling, full explanatory notes, and scene-by-scene action summaries.
