Shakespeare in Quarto

The most significant value of this well-designed and multi-faceted database lies in the British Library's 93 quarto texts of 21 plays, which can be studied individually or compared in their variant editions. The database also provides background information about Shakespeare, his works, the theatre world of his time, and the printing of his plays, as well as a list of references and links to websites of special relevance to the quartos. An "Afterlife" section traces changes in the plays in print and performance from the Restoration to the 21st century.
