In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England. London was alive with an interest in all things Scottish, and Shakespeare turned to Scottish history for material. He found a spectacle of violence and stories of traitors advised by witches and wizards, echoing James’s belief in a connection between treason and witchcraft.<BR> <BR>In depicting a man who murders to become king, <i>Macbeth</i> teases us with huge questions. Is Macbeth tempted by fate, or by his or his wife’s ambition? Why does their success turn to ashes?<BR> <BR>Like other plays, <i>Macbeth</i> speaks to each generation. Its story was once seen as that of a hero who commits an evil act and pays an enormous price. Recently, it has been applied to nations that overreach themselves and to modern alienation. The line is blurred between Macbeth’s evil and his opponents’ good, and there are new attitudes toward both witchcraft and gender.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Macbeth</i> from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:<BR> <BR>-The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference<BR> -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation<BR> -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play<BR> -Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently linked to the text of the play<BR> -Scene-by-scene plot summaries<BR> -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases<BR> -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language<BR> -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play<BR> -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books<BR> -An annotated guide to further reading<BR> <BR>Essay by Susan Snyder<BR> <BR>The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

In <i>Romeo and Juliet</i>, Shakespeare creates a violent world, in which two young people fall in love. It is not simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud.<BR> <BR>In this death-filled setting, the movement from love at first sight to the lovers’ final union in death seems almost inevitable. And yet, this play set in an extraordinary world has become the quintessential story of young love. In part because of its exquisite language, it is easy to respond as if it were about all young lovers.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Romeo and Juliet</i> from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:<BR> <BR>-The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference<BR> -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation<BR> -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play<BR> -Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently linked to the text of the play<BR> -Scene-by-scene plot summaries<BR> -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases<BR> -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language<BR> -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play<BR> -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books<BR> -An annotated guide to further reading<BR> <BR>Essay by Gail Kern Paster<BR> <BR>The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

La tâche que nous nous sommes imposée n’est pas sans péril. De toutes parts nous arrivent les provocations et les menaces.<br />Un aimable patriote nous écrit, et termine sa lettre en dessinant au bas une guillotine avec un poignard : il nous laisse généreusement le choix entre les deux genres de mort.<br />Un autre nous annonce un coup d’épée.<br />Un troisième veut nous envoyer une balle dans le crâne.<br />Un quatrième moins sanguinaire, nous prévient qu’il écrira très-prochainement notre biographie.<br />À la bonne heure ! Vis-à-vis de nous la plume est une arme courtoise. Nous engageons le spirituel homme de lettres qui nous juge digne de cette gloire à ne pas accepter ses renseignements à la légère.<br />M. Émile de Girardin, par exemple, lui dirait que nous sommes né en 1806 et que nous avons QUARANTE-HUIT ANS[1].

Shakespeare may have written <i>Julius Caesar</i> as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar’s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare’s play keeps this debate alive.<BR> <BR>The authoritative edition of <i>Julius Caesar</i> from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:<BR> <BR>-The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference<BR> -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation<BR> -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play<BR> -Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently linked to the text of the play<BR> -Scene-by-scene plot summaries<BR> -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases<BR> -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language<BR> -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play<BR> -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books<BR> -An annotated guide to further reading<BR> <BR>Essay by Coppélia Kahn<BR> <BR>The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

"Never before, in the entire history of the American theater, has so much of the truth of black people's lives been seen on the stage," observed James Baldwin shortly before <i>A Raisin in the Sun </i>opened on Broadway in 1959.<br /><br />Indeed Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning drama about the hopes and aspirations of a struggling, working-class family living on the South Side of Chicago connected profoundly with the psyche of black America--and changed American theater forever.  The play's title comes from a line in Langston Hughes's poem "Harlem," which warns that a dream deferred might "dry up/like a raisin in the sun."<br /><br />"The events of every passing year add resonance to <i>A Raisin in the Sun</i>," said <i>The New York Times</i>.  "It is as if history is conspiring to make the play a classic."
