by Shakespeare, William, and 1stworld Library, Library (Editor)

Overview -
"This volume is the second in the Hackett series of editions of Shakespeare's Roman plays that provide extensive historical annotations and explanations.

According to these editions, they are, in effect, Renaissance plays, not Roman, plays"--
