The New Kittredge Shakespeare Cymbeline offers the text of the play, and glosses, as prepared by William Kittredge for his Complete Works of William Shakespeare.

Hannah C. Wojciehowski's performance notes and additional textual notes offer readers a streamlined reading experience aimed at helping them understand the play and envision how key "interpretive junctures" in it have been, and might yet be, performed on stage or screen. Wojciehowski's Introduction brilliantly illuminates the play's plot and lyricism as well as its treatment in recent stage and screen productions--including Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline (2014).

In "How to Read Cymbeline as Performance" an interview with James Loehlin, Director of the Shakespeare at Winedale program at the University of Texas, offers practical reflections on making the leap from reading this challenging play to imagining its performance.

Notes on Names, Pronunciation, and Language; A Cymbeline Timeline; Topics for Discussion and Further Study; and Bibliography and Filmography are also included.
