Aspects of Macbeth, with its companion volume, Aspects of Othello, brings together authoritative articles by distinguished Shakespeare scholars. In making their selections from the entire range of Shakespeare Survey volumes, Professors Kenneth Muir and Philip Edwards have borne the interests of general readers in mind as well as the needs of teachers and students. In each volume the plate section includes both the articles' original illustrations and new material and there are specially written prefaces by the editors.
