Product Description

About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter Susanna and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright, but as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.

"Excellent student resource" Feb. 8 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's just the text of the play. Which is fine, but don't tell people it's "newly annotated edition-excellent student resource" when that just isn't there.
Not the most readable layout Dec 8 2011
By K. Donovan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I did not actually buy this edition, because I downloaded the sample and decided that it would be too difficult to read. Download the sample and decide for yourself, but there are other versions out there that are much better typeset. Still, not the worst I've seen, hence two stars.
A Merry Romp on the Stage Oct. 18 2014
By Carol Angel - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
How can you not enjoy this 'merry romp' by Shakespeare? Sexist? A bit. But more about love and respect, even in an arranged marriage. Anyhow, it's nice to get it in an inexpensive, easy to read format.
