    Find Shakespeare quite a challenge but after reading it several times I really was engrossed and enjoyed it.Needed to read it because I was going to a production of The Winters Tale at the Lyceum in Edinburgh Brilliant production and now I am awakened to Shakespeare after 50 years Read Romeo and Juliet for O level and Othello for A leve

    like all Arden copies of Shakespeare s plays I have bought I cannot fault its content and all the information collated for the reader.I have not found any other editions of the plays which are so consistently useful.
