Description

From Longman's Cultural Editions series, Antony and Cleopatra, edited by David Quint, presents William Shakespeare's classic work along with a critical introduction and contextual materials on and from the period.  

 

Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts—cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete text of an important literary work, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track its composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.

 

One Longman Cultural Edition can be packaged at no additional cost with any volume of The Longman Anthology of British Literature by Damrosch et al., or at a discount with any other Longman textbook.
