   schema:reviewBody ""Pericles was one of the most popular plays of its time, and it has regained much of that popularity in the modern theatre. Roger Warren draws upon his extensive experience of the play in rehearsal and performance to suggest why. Pericles survives only in a corrupt text, and this edition offers a reconstruction of what the original play might have been like by drawing on a narrative by the Jacobean dramatist George Wilkins, who probably collaborated with Shakespeare in writing the play. The Introduction argues the case for this collaboration, and explains the complex textual situation. The entire original text is reprinted in an Appendix, so that readers can see for themselves how the reconstruction has been made. With the lively discussion of how the play works in the theatre, this makes the edition much more comprehensive than any currently available, and thus much more useful for actors, students, and the general reader."--BOOK JACKET." ;
