The purpose of this edition of Shakespeare's plays by Richard Leed is to identify all of the lines of pentameter verse whose metrical status is noteworthy. Accentuation and syllabification are marked typographically, and deviations in stress pattern from the standards of Modern American English are discussed in footnotes, e.g. British vs. American pronunciation, Elizabethan vs. Modern English, etc.  This site contains other works edited, written, and/or performed by Richard Leed, such as Chaucer's Marriage Tales, The Book of Job, and family documents of historical interest.
