Internet Shakespeare Editions

Description: 

Established in 1996, "the Internet Shakespeare Editions (ISE) is a non-profit scholarly website publishing in three main areas: Shakespeare’s plays and poems, Shakespeare’s life and times, and Shakespeare in performance". The mission of the ISE is "to inspire a love of Shakespeare's works in a world-wide audience by delivering open-access, peer-reviewed Shakespeare resources with the highest standards of scholarship, design, and usability". In order to accomplish this goal the ISE has employed a team of scholars to re-edit each of Shakespeare's plays for a the digital medium. These editions are published as they progress - making the content available when it is completed and allowing the integration of multimedia to enhance the value of the edition.
