Edited by the Rev. CHARLES E. MOBERLY, M.A., Assistant-Master in Rugby School, and formerly Scholar of Balliol College, Oxford. "This is a handy, clearly printed school edition of Shakspere's bright play. The notes are sensible, and not overdone, and the Introduction is helpful."-Athenæum. "The notes are clear, to the point, and brief, and for the most part excellent." Standard.

"A very excellent text, very ably annotated."-Standard. "The plan of giving a brief sketch of each character in the play lends additional interest to it for the young learner. The notes are mainly explanatory, and serve the same useful purpose of clearing away difficulties from the path of the young reader. Of all school Shaksperes, this seems to us considerably the best."-Educational Times.

"The Introductions in this edition are particularly good, rising above the dull level of antiquarianism into a region of intelligent and sympathetic comment and analysis not often reached in school-books. The Rugby Edition will do well either for school or home reading."--London Quarterly Review.
2s. 6d. ; paper cover, 25.
Edited by ROBERT WHITElaw, M. A., Assistant-Master in Rugby School, formerly Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
"The way in which the play is edited displays careful scholarship, and the whole edition is extremely well adapted for school use."-Educational Times.
"This number of the Rugby Edition of Select Plays of Shakspere we think the best of the series. There is more effort than before to bring out the characteristics of the central figure of the play, the notes are fuller, and the glossary too."--Athenæum.

HE first draught of this edition was written in 1870, and privately published for immediate use. An endeavour has now been made to incorporate the more recent results of Shakespearian criticism. The book would never have reappeared had the Clarendon Press edition of the play been as adequate on the aesthetic side as it is on the philological; but in all the one hundred closely-printed pages of preface and notes in that edition there is not a word on the plot or the characters. Those who are interested in making English literature take its proper place in English education have loudly expressed their disappointment at this omission. No lover of Shakespeare can help feeling grateful to Mr. Wright for his invaluable contributions on his own lines of study. Few, however, will agree with him in his present contention. "Esthetic notes," he declares, are beside the scope and purpose of these books as vehicles of instruction and education," and "have been deliberately and intentionally omitted, because one main object of this edition is to induce those for whom they are expressly designed to read and study Shakespeare himself." (King Lear, Preface, p. xviii.) An excellent object, but a strange way to reach it. The natural way to induce young or old to study an author is surely to make the study attractive by bringing the more interesting side into
