9780004704746: Collins Classics - The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: The Alexander Text

Authoritative and respected, the Collins version of Shakespeare’s complete writings is a national institution. Edited by the late scholar Professore Peter Alexander and with new material by some of the most highly respected academics in the field, this is the essential one-volume collection of the bard’s works.

Described in The Guardian on its first publication in 1951 as ‘a symbol in the history of our national culture’, the Collins edition of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare, edited by the late Professor Peter Alexander, has long been established as one of the most authoritative editions of Shakespeare’s works, and was chosen by the BBC as the basis for its televised cycle of the plays.

Completely reset in 1994 and given a modern, reader-friendly design, the new edition also includes two specially written articles on Shakespeare’s life and work by two great critics: an illuminating biography of Shakespeare by Germaine Greer, and a wide-ranging introduction to Shakespeare’s theatre by the late Anthony Burgess.
