NEW PENGUIN SHAKESPEARE




THIS PAGE 'NS' NS1 - NS21





This series superceded the Penguin Shakespeare 'B' series which successfully ran from April 1937 to September 1959 with 37 titles and selling well over 1.5 million copies. The 'New Penguin Shakespeare' series 'NS' was edited by Terence Spencer and commenced in April 1967 with NS1 Romeo and Juliet (which book was edited by Terence J. B. Spencer). These books were accompanied by a new set of commentaries printed under the series heading of 'The Penguin Shakespeare Library', 'SL'.
On a few of the spines, the prefix 'PNS' has been used.

"The New Penguin Shakespeare offers a complete edition of the plays and poems. Each volume has been prepared from the original texts and includes an introduction, a list of further reading, a full and helpful commentary, and a short account of the textual problems of the play."
