Arden, in general, has the definitive series for those studying or teaching Shakespeare. The footnotes are very valuable resources for the language, history, and even staging of the plays. If you only have room or money for one set of Shakepeare's plays, make Arden your choice.

Neil Freeman edits the First Folio, showing how much "cleaning up" by most mosern text is unnecessary, and in fact, holds back information from the actor, director, and reader. Modern editors, even respected ones like the Arden, assume that Shakespeare couldn't have possibly meant to vary from the 10 syllable line and try to "correct" his "mistakes." To assume that Shakespeare was wrong and we are right is foolhardy, and Freeman's editions prove it.
