Summary note
Shakespeare's plays had to be "made fit" to suit the new theatrical conditions, and were drastically revised. Because the list of revisions and reworkings goes on almost indefintiely, in this volume Sandra Clark has brought together five important and intruiging pieces which have particular relevance to readers now.
