Reviews

`I bought this book for my 15 year old son, for school. He particularly appreciates the notes which are on the side of the text, so there are easy to find and he doesn't lose his line. The presentation is very clear, and the information about the play, and Shakespeare, are very useful.' 5 star Amazon review
