More About the Author

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful 28 Nov 2009
The pages with translations into modern language is very helpful however it doesn't totally take over your own views on what could be meant. It's a shame however that the cover looks so childish as it deals with subjects only really relevant to A2 English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 12 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm currently studying Hamlet for my A Levels, and this edition is absolutely amazing. I love the fact that there's summaries of each Acts at the beginning and on the right hand side of each page, there are definition/translation of words that may not be understood.
I recommend this edition to every student.

I purchased two of these books. One was in excellent condition the cover and spine was like new, there was some light pencil writing inside however this did not detract from the quality. The second book, the cover and spine were more worn and it appeared second hand but not a mark on the inside. Overall very pleased with the purchase and would use st seller again.

It is listed under no notes or highlighting but there are in fact a number of notes. This isn't a problem but it should have been stated.
