Excerpt from The Tragedy of Hamlet

The variants given are only those of importance and high authority.

The spelling and the punctuation of the text are mod crn, except in the case of verb terminations in -cd', which, when the e is silent, are printed with the apostrophe in its place. This is the general usage in the First Folio. The im portant contractions in the First Folio which may indicate Elizabethan pronunciation i' th for 'in the,' for example) are also followed. Modern spelling has to a certain extent been adopted in the text variants; but the original spelling has been retained wherever its peculiarities have been the basis for important textual criticism and emendation.

With the exception of the position of the textual vari ants, the plan of this edition is similar to that of the old Hudson Shakespeare. It is impossible to specify the vari ous instances of revision and rearrangement in the matter of the Introduction and the interpretative notes, but the endeavor has been to retain all that gave the old edition its unique place and to add the results of what seems vital and permanent in later inquiry and research.
