This set, which was originally an expansion of Professor Dover Wilson's Sandars lectures of 1934, has been out of print for many years and is now reissued.

What Happens in Hamlet deals with the dramatic problems and the text itself, with annotations, is published as one of the volumes of the New Shakespeare
Love's labour's lost by William Shakespeare( Book )
33 editions published between 1923 and 2009 in English and held by 750 libraries worldwide
Love's Labour's Lost, now recognized as one of the most delightful and stageworthy of Shakespeare's comedies, came into its own both on the stage and in critical esteem only during the 1930s and 1940s--after nearly three hundred years of neglect by the theater and misuse by critics
The tragedy of Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare( Book )
54 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and held by 721 libraries worldwide
"Troilus and Cressida, long considered one of Shakespeare's most problematic plays, is both difficult and fascinating. Largely neglected during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it has recently proved popular and rewarding on the stage as well as in the study. This edition questions certain received ideas about the play's text, especially the relationship between Quarto and Folio, and offers several new readings of old problems. Dawson's textual choices are often surprising but at the same time carefully grounded. He views the play from a performance perspective - frequently in the Commentary as well as in the detailed section on stage history in the Introduction. The Introduction also covers the cultural context in which the play was written, probes the controversy about its early performance, and provides extensive analysis of character, language, genre, and contemporary significance."--Jacket
