Shakespeare has generated a critical literature that is unsurpassed in its richness and variety. Routledge has been responsible for a disproportionate share of this, especially through Methuen Academic, the original publisher of the Arden Shakespeare. Routledge Library Editions: Shakespeare will make up to sixty out of print titles on Shakespeare available again, and will reflect changing patterns in the reception and interpretation of Shakespeare over the last fifty years.
Mini-sets are as follows:
A: Comedies: 6 Volumes: 0-415-35328-9

Routledge Library Editions re-issue volumes from the distinguished and extensive backlist of the many imprints associated with Routledge in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trubner, Routledge & Kegan Paul, Methuen, Allen & Unwin and Routledge itself. Focusing mainly (but not exclusively) on the Humanities and Social Sciences, Routledge Library Editions offer the individual as well as the institutional purchaser the opportunity to acquire volumes by some of the greatest thinkers and authors of the last 120 years either on a title-by-title basis or as carefully selected mini-sets or extensive ‘libraries’ of 50+ volumes.
