Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 205 comments 1. Please modify so that Shakespeare is listed as the primary author.

2. Please capitalize the title properly.

Thank you!

I'm unsure whether this is perhaps considered an adaptation. In which case the authors stay the same.

Someone more knowledgeable than I will no doubt come along.

At 288-400 pages, the majority of the content cannot be Shakespeare's play.

It's not an adaptation; it's a collection. The play, and about a dozen essays and other documents tangential to it.

The editors are correctly listed first.

Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 205 comments No, it's not an adaptation. It's the original text of Shakespeare's play The Tempest, followed by a selection of critical material.

Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 205 comments Really? If I were looking for this work in my library, I would always search for it as a text by Shakespeare, not Graff and Phelan.

An annotated edition is one thing. But in this case, it looks like about 80-90% of the content is not by Shakespeare.
