Once viewed as the first play composed by a young Shakespeare, since the late nineteenth century Pericles has instead been viewed as the first of the ‘late’ plays. This essay explores the processes through which this occurred, and their implications for our understanding of recent editorial and theatrical interventions. By paying attention to the old tradition that Pericles is an early work, we can perceive some of the manoeuvres that are required to make it fully ‘late’.
