I want to read Shakespeare /lit/, but I'm completely lost when it comes to choosing editions. I'm talking physical books.
What are the best options for someone that wants to read and understand him? (I clarify this because I know there's plenty of editions meant for study with endless footnotes). Should I go for individual books for every of his major works? Should I stick with a complete collection perhaps? In any case, which editions?
been spending months looking for shakespeare editions. your options are super limited if you want individual editions - all paperback, arden or norton are generally recommended. oxford is not a bad choice either.
for complete one volume tomes, go for riverside or pelican.
is this your first time reading shakespeare? if so you might want something that's heavier on the footnotes to explain syntax and vocabulary.
Not OP but I have the Arden version of hamlet and there are way too many notes. Literally 3/4 of the page is explanation and 1/4 is the actual play. It makes any kind of flow impossible.
After that I bought the rest in the modern library rsc editions. They explain the more archaic words or expressions that we wouldn't know currently. 1 essay is included.
Shakespeare isn't that hard to understand and I think that Arden and probably Norton overdue the notes unless you want to be a Shakespeare scholar.

I enjoy "A Season in Hell" quite a bit. Any recommendations on where to go next? Other than Rimbaud's other work?
Also, general poetry recommendations thread.
Depends. Did you read it in French? In English translation?
In French: read Jules LaForgue, Baudelaire, and if your french is strong enough, Mallarme. You might move on to Apollinaire after that. After reading LaForgue in French you'd do best to read TS Eliot's early lyrical poetry. It's the bridge between the french symbolists and the english modernists.
Read Illuminations, imo better than Season. Then you can go to a lot of poets (Jacob, Reverdy, Char, Michaux, surrealists etc.)
Laforgue imo isn't the best advice here (even though I totally love his poetry).
