" Each play is preceded by an introduction, remarkably weli digested and condensed,
giving an account of the text, and of the sources from which Shakespeare
helped himself to plots or incidents. His notes prove him to be capable of
profound as well as delicate and sympathetic exegesis, and we think that a
careful collation justifies us in saying that in acute discrimination of acsthetic
shades of expression, and often of textual niceties, Mr. White is superioj
to any previous editor." LOWELL.
