Very Good

It was a very good read and I liked the binding too.


I am returning this book . Letters too small for me to read . Have to find a better edition .

Illuminating Shakespeare

The book is beautifully bound, scarlet with gold-edged pages. Each play is preceeded by well-researched background material as to when it was probably written. Reviewers such as Samual Coleridge and Marlow analyze each play, and footnotes at the bottom of each page explain quaint usage, etc. These notes do not get in the way if you do not want to use them. There are dozens of black and white illustrations that dramatize certain scenes in each play. All the illustrations are evocative and well-executed, adding to the experience of reading the plays. Following each play there is an historical overview given of each Act, what materials Shakespeare likely used, etc. An excellent book for Shakespeare lovers and/or those who have seen the plays and want to read them.

A forever reference set

Keep this in your library - not only does it look good it feels good. You will always have Shakespeare on hand to get in your literary fix. Shakespeare in a serious readers library is a must!

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare in Happy Birthday to the Marvelous Margaret Atwood
Happy Birthday to the Marvelous Margaret Atwood
Published by Ashly Moore Sheldon • November 18, 2020

Margaret Atwood is 81 years old today! The renowned Canadian author has been publishing poetry, novels, nonfiction, children’s books, and more since 1961, but her star just keeps on rising. Known largely for books like The Handmaid’s Tale, you may be surprised to learn that speculative fiction actually represents a small fraction of the versatile author’s work.
