Over the coming months, I'm going to take a closer look at what makes each edition of Shakespeare's works what it is. I'd also appreciate feedback from others on the differences. I'm sure there are more editions than I can count but these are the main ones I know of:

Globe
Arden/New Arden
Riverside
Bevington
Oxford
New Variorum
Cambridge
New Cambridge
Folger
Penguin/New Penguin
Pelican
Gutenberg
MIT
Moby
Norton
Perseus
Nameless Edition
Broadview Internet Edition
Royal Shakespeare Company Edition

Let me know if I should add any to this list. I'll then begin explaining the differences in the different editions in subsequent postings.

You've omitted the *New* Cambridge series, a very good (complete, AFAIK) series of separate editions of the plays & poems, generally on a par with the Oxford & Arden series.

Please add the new edition commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, edited by Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, and published by Modern Library in 2007. I especially look forward to input on this edition (as well as the previously listed 2002 Pelican edited by Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller).
