    Reviews & endorsements

    "[McMillin's] challenging introduction makes a keen case for rethinking not only the relation between the two printed texts and their manuscript progenitors but also for the relation among writing, performance and print in the early modern theater." Studies in English Literature

    "This new edition, using modernized spelling and offering substantive textual and collation notes, makes the First Quarto (Q1) accessible for study or performance in nearly original form. Essential for theater practicioners and historians as wel as students and scholars of Shakespeare." Choice

    "There have been published facsimilies, but Scott McMillin's The First Quarto of Othello is the first modernized and edited version of the 1622 original.... citations in the introduction are plentiful and clearly documented.... university students of Shakespeare and of textual bibliography will find editions in this Early Quartos series both accessible and illuminating." Sixteenth Century Journal
