Of special interest in this first accurate and fully annotated text of an important segment of the Johnson canon are the notes of his first and revised editions of Shakespeare, the Preface and General Observations, the Miscellaneous Observations on the Tragedy of Macbeth, the Preface to Mrs. Lennox's Shakespeare Illustrated, and the Proposals for an Edition, Johnson's likes and dislikes in language, imagery, and poetic and dramatic techniques are unmistakably expressed, and, to demonstrate precisely Johnson's comments, pertinent portions of Shakespeare's text are reproduced.Mr. Sherbo is professor of English at Michigan State University; Mr. Bronson is professor of English at the University of California at Berkeley.
