Editorial principles and publishing history: This edition takes the 1623 folio as its copy text, modernizing spelling and punctuation according to the guidelines and rationale laid out by Stanley Wells in Modernizing Shakespeare's Spelling (1979). It has been conservatively emended, maintaining folio readings wherever it has been possible to justify their sense. For individual textual cruxes, see commentary notes; for a fuller description of the editorial rationale, see the textual essay.
