Steven Urkowitz argues to the contrary that the Quarto and Folio are simply different stages of Shakespears writing--an early draft and a final revision--and that they reveal much about his process of composition.Originally published in 1987.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
