Bad or pirated quarto is a term and concept developed by twentieth-century Shakespeare scholars to explain some problems in the early transmission of the texts of Shakespearean works. It has subsequently been used for other playtexts unrelated to Shakespeare.
Famous quotes containing the word bad:
“I never had anybody but you ... not a real husband ... not even a man.... Its a bad joke without a punch line.”
—Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
