PREFATORY NOTE

MACBETH has been edited so often and so well that a school edition can contain little that is new. The present edition is, therefore, a compilation, and that to a much greater extent than the acknowledgments in the notes would imply. The notes of prerious editors have been freely used without indication of the sources from which they were drawn; when authority is given for a note, it is usually due to some special reason. Furthermore, in quoting other editors I have almost invariably quoted not from the original, but from Dr. Furness's variorum edition ; in cases in which reference to that storehouse of learning will not disclose the source of my information, I have mentioned the scholar to whom I am indebted. It remains to say that of the few notes which I suppose myself to have contributed, such as are good probably belong in reality to the two men who taught me to read Shakspere, President Charles Manly of Furman University, and Professor G. L. Kittredge of Harvard.

J. M. M. PROVIDENCE, R. I., August 4, 1896.
