Name commonly given to the New Shakespeare series, published by Cambridge University Press, which began in 1921; early volumes were edited by J. Dover Wilson with introductions by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, who died in 1944. Wilson then took complete responsibility, but in later years individual volumes were edited by others. The series concluded with the Sonnets in 1966. In 1983 appeared the first volumes of the New Cambridge Shakespeare under the General Editorship of Professor Philip Brockbank.
