The Comedy of Errors

A New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare

Edited by Standish Henning

The Comedy of Errors not only contains the complete text of the play but also presents the expanse of scholarly opinion and interpretation from the earliest commentary to the present. It covers dating, sources, and emendations to stage history and influential interpretations of particular words.

This Variorum volume includes a CD that contains the contents as fully text-searchable PDFs with internal links for easy navigation.

Inaugurated in the 1860s and the standard reference edition of Shakespeare's work, the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare continues the tradition of the original Variorum editions of the early nineteenth century. The New Variorum editions are valuable resources for an international audience of scholars, students, directors, actors, and general readers. Overseen by two general editors and an MLA committee, the production of each edition is conducted by a team of scholars and researchers working over a number of years.

Reviews

"The aim is to be comprehensive, and it has surely been achieved. . . . Most of the scholarship digested here is beyond criticism, the coverage comprehensive, the level of accuracy exceptional. . . . The discussion of "Sources and Influences" is also excellent . . . [A]n essential reference work for all aspects of the play, living up to the highest standards of the New Variorum edition."

—Brian Vickers, Review of English Studies
