Quick Overview

Forthcoming - March 2019


Like previous editions in the New Kittredge Shakespeare series, this edition of The Two Noble Kinsmen takes George Lyman Kittredge's text as its base, though in this case one that has been extensively edited by Jim Casey in the light of more recent editions. As Kittredge never published a free-standing edition of the play, all annotations and performance notes are Casey's and have been prepared specifically for this edition. In addition to other standard features of New Kittredge Shakespeare editions—Topics for Discussion and Further Study, a timeline, and a discussion of reading the play as performance—it offers a splendid new Introduction by Casey focusing on the themes and recent production history of this recently revived play of Shakespeare and Fletcher's.


"This edition of The Two Noble Kinsmen is smart, accessible, and highly valuable for students and for scholars. Casey's contributions provide keen insights into the play’s multiplicities of meaning through performance history and production survey, textual study, and thematic discovery. The result is an edition that reveals this sometimes-overlooked play’s richness and complexities, and Casey’s engaging student materials will surely contribute much to the play's resurgence for new generations of readers." —Timothy Francisco, Professor of English, Youngstown State University
