Reviews

`many students will no doubt relish the fullness of Professor Levenson's notes. Indeed, they may often be particularly grateful for the care with which she directs readers to even fuller discussions to be found elsewhere' The Review of English Studies, Vol.52, No.207

`Professor Levenson provides an excellent and often very thought-provoking account of performance history, and many of her most interesting discussions and annotations relate to questions of staging, traditional, unusual, or possible' The Review of English Studies, Vol.52, No.207

`excellent decision to include the whole of the Q1 text as well as Q2' The Review of English Studies, Vol.52, No.207
