The English Renaissance in Context

The English Renaissance in Context

This site provides great multimedia tutorials for some of Shakespeare's works, including "Romeo and Juliet", "Merchant of Venice", "Richard III", and "King Lear." These include images of original texts, explanations of Shakespeare's use of historical sources, and discussions of how the texts have changed over time. There are also tutorials discussing the problems with publishing during Shakespeare's time, and these shed light on the existence of variant texts.
