Arden Shakespeare

I read on The Freudian Petticoat this morning that the Arden Shakespeare has one-sidedly decided to end their contract with Patricia Parker for her edition of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Arden 3 series. The Chronicle ran an article on the matter. There is also a website in support of Patricia Parker on which she tells her side of the disquieting story. The site also links to a petition started by Richard Halpern to ask the publishing firm that now owns the Arden Shakespeare to reinstate Parker as the editor.
