William Shakespeare and Others: Collaborative Plays
Eric Rasmussen (Editor), Jonathan Bate (Editor)

From The Royal Shakespeare Company, this is the first edition for over a hundred years of the fascinatingly varied body of plays that has become known as ‘The Shakespeare Apocrypha’. As a companion to their award-winning The RSC Shakespeare: Complete Works, renowned scholars Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, supported by a dynamic team of co-editors, now provide a fascinating insight into ten plays in which Shakespeare may have had a hand. A magisterial essay by Will Sharpe provides a comprehensive account of the Authorship and Attribution of each play.

Combining outstanding textual scholarship with elegant writing and design, this unique collection allows us to revisit the question of what is Shakespearean. It is an indispensable book for students, teachers, performers, scholars and lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.

* Jargon-free, on-page notes which explain the words or references that are unfamiliar to modern audiences;
* A key facts 'box' for each play summarizing the plot, major roles, language and sources;
* Inimitable introductions by acclaimed scholar Sir Jonathan Bate;
* Illuminating interviews with actors and directors who have staged the plays, including RSC Artistic Directors Terry Hands, Michael Boyd and Gregory Doran;
* Includes Sir Thomas More, which contains the only scene from any play to survive in Shakespeare's own handwriting, and the domestic murder tragedy * Arden of Faversham, in which Shakespeare's hand has been detected by recent computer-assisted analysis;
* Beautifully packaged and illustrated, with elegant jacket artwork and reader-friendly single-column page design.
