This Oxfordian Shakespeare Series presents for the first time fully annotated editions informed by the view that the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th earl of Oxford-a view that reveals their true meaning and significance not only for his contemporaries but also for today's readers and playgoers. Taking advantage of almost a century of Oxfordian scholarship as well as traditional scholarship, the editors show how Oxford, like all great writers, drew on his own life experience and his times. The editions reward the reader with a new and profound appreciation of the plays as the works of a controversial nobleman in Queen Elizabeth's court whose works appeared under the pen name William Shakespeare. Lovers of Shakespeare will want to see how this Oxfordian perspective informs and illuminates the plays. The plays in the Oxfordian Shakespeare Series and their editors include: Macbeth, Richard F. Whalen, co-general editor of the series Othello, Ren Draya, Blackburn College; and Richard F. Whalen Hamlet, Jack Shuttleworth, chair, English Department, USAF Academy (ret.) Antony and Cleopatra, Michael Delahoyde, Washington State University The Tempest, Roger Stritmatter, Coppin State University, with Lynne Kositsky King John, Daniel L. Wright, Concordia University, Portland, Oregon Henry the Fifth, Kathy R.
