Shakespeare and the Classical Tradition

Preface to the electronic republication

This book appears in electronic form exactly as it appeared in its only previous publication, University of Minnesota Press, 1968. The republication is a new printing, not a new edition. "Not Seens", omissions, later printings of materials compiled in this book, and errors pointed out by reviewers and users will all be treated in the Supplement 1961-2001, now well under way, but not yet near completion. The compiler therefore will be pleased to hear from anyone who in working with this electronic republication detects a substantive factual error or an omission. Contact compiler by mail John W. Velz, P.O. Box 49803, Austin, TX 78765-0803, U.S.A. or by e-mail to
