Excellent Edition with Strong Supplementary Material July 7 2012
By R. J. Marsella - Published on
Format: Paperback
Of all the History plays, Richard II may be Shakespeare's most poetic. That lyricism grows out of the portrayal of Richard II as a weak ruler who provides poetic commentary on his own demise. The Cambridge edition is a great choice for it's introductory material that sets the play within the context of political issues very much alive in Elizabethan England that mirrored to a degree the circumstances that Richard faced 200 years earlier. Questions surrounding how to deal with an unjust sovereign and the deposition of a monarch must have been delicate when Shakespeare brought this to the stage.
The background material included here is very helpful in reading this play and fully understanding it's significance.

Study Abroad Nov. 1 2011
By S. Maldonado - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to have this book for a study abroad program I was doing and I was glad to have found the book in the States because I would have had to buy it in Stratford-upon-Avon and would have had to pay for the book in pounds. It came out less expensive on Amazon than it would have been in England.
