I feel that I have spent half my career with one or another Pelican Shakespeare in my back pocket.

Convenience, however, is the least important aspect of the new Pelican Shakespeare series. Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller who understand that these are plays for performance as well as great texts for contemplation.
(Patrick Stewart)

Each volume features:
* Authoritative, reliable texts
* High quality introductions and notes

Who deciphers them? S. DROMIO I, sir, am Dromio; command him away. [335] E. DROMIO I, sir, am Dromio; pray let me

Fetch thy master home. E. DROMIO Am I so round with you, as you with me, That like a football you do spurn me thus?

what my sorrow gives me leave. In Syracusa was I born, and wed Unto a woman, happy but for me, And by me, had not our hap been bad. [40] With her I liv’d in joy; our wealth increas’d By prosperous voyages I often made To Epidamnum; till my factor’s death, And the great care of goods at random left, Drew me from kind embracements of my spouse; [45] From whom my absence was not six months old, Before herself, almost at fainting under The pleasing punishment that women bear, Had made

DROMIO Master, shall I be porter at the gate? ADRIANA Ay; and let none enter, lest I break your pate. LUCIANA Come, come, Antipholus, we dine too late.
