This trade edition of the popular Folger Library Shakespeare includes the familiar features of the mass market edition: facing-page explanatory notes, scene-by-scene plot summaries, and illustrations from the Folger archives. The bonus DVD adds a performance of Macbeth recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger’s intimate Elizabethan Theatre. Conceived and directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner, this acclaimed production showcases the inventive magic of Teller, who, with Posner, contributes a new foreword to this edition, writing about their vision of the play as a "supernatural horror thriller." The DVD also includes over 50 minutes of special features, including interviews with the directors, actors, designers, and scholars. Color. 124 minutes. 272 pages. 2009 edition.

Quantities are limited.
