To be avoided are The New Oxford Shakespeare ed. Taylor, Jowett, Bourus, and Egan , both of which represent the worst trends in Shakespeare editing of the last 40 years, making perverse and unhelpful changes throughout. The Pelican Shakespeare ed. Orgel and Braunmuller reflects some of these unfortunate tendencies as well and is not recommended. The Norton Shakespeare 2nd Edition edited by Greenblatt, Cohen, Howard, and Maus took the Oxford text as its basis and so disqualifies itself on that account.
The Norton 3rd Edition same editors plus McMullan and Gossett sagely abandoned the Oxford text for its own, but I have not been able to review it yet. Proudfoot, Kastan, and Thompson prints the generally high-quality Arden texts as of , but is as bare-bones as can be, including no notes whatsoever. For the texts themselves, this is an excellent edition, but the lack of even light annotation makes me hesitant to recommend it when Bevington and Evans are available. Bate and Rasmussen opts for reprinting the First Folio texts over any others when available.
A collection of the First Folio texts in original spelling would be welcome on that account. Yet a more readable non-facsimile would be worthy. It is very difficult to know where to begin with Shakespeare criticism.
I put together two lists some years ago that Amazon, in their wisdom, will no longer allow me to edit. They are lists of books that have struck me personally, and which I think are of appeal to more than just an academic specialist. Bate has read vastly more of this stuff than I have.

The beginning of more ambiguous interpretations of the plays and the conflicting feelings they can generate in audiences. Questions how we are to respond to the plays, whether the plays have conclusive meanings at all, and how they play with that idea itself. Booth, like Rabkin, takes a more metatextual view of the plays than earlier critics. More quirky than Rabkin but intermittently brilliant.
