Pericles was one of the most popular plays of its time, and it has regained much of that popularity in the modern theater. Roger Warren draws upon his extensive experience of the play in rehearsal and performance to suggest why. Pericles survives only in a corrupt text, and this edition offers a conjectural reconstruction of what the original play might have been like. It also presents the play as a collaboration between Shakespeare and the Jacobean dramatist George Wilkins.
