message 1: by Carrie (new)

Carrie Powell | 2 comments I'm looking for a set of the complete works and I'm having a hard time finding what I want. Does anyone have a set that you can recommend? Or ideas on where to find a set? I would like multiple hardcover volumes not just one big book.

message 2: by Everyman (new)

Everyman | 85 comments If you want separate hardcover volumes of each play, I don't know of any such series being published today; you're probably going to have to go to the used book market for the original Arden volumes. But I don't recommend them; scholarship has advanced a lot since then, and modern editions are, in my experience, usually preferable.

I have an eight volume hardback set by Everyman; two volumes each of the Tragedies, Comedies, and Histories, a volume of the romances, and a slim volume of the poems. I don't know whether they're still available new, at least some of them appear to be, but I'm not sure whether all are. But if not, they probably are in the secondhand book market.
