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.

Format: Paperback
I'm studying this for higher english and it is very good in terms of print, publishing and content as i expected. The only thing this edition does not have is specific notes referencing to out of date words which would be great if it had it, but it is still fine from a studying point of view. In terms of enjoyment... I have enjoyed the story so far but i have'nt finished it. Great buy though

This edition of Romeo and Juliet, the love story of all love stories was excellently priced even though it was brand new. It was exactly as described and arrived punctually.

A decent quality copy of a great play. And so inexpensive! No need to review the play itself, I don't suppose.
If you are looking to annotate/highlight/read and re-read, this copy may be a little flimsy for you, but for the casual reader, it is perfect.

Couldn't believe how cheap I picked up this play, in a brand new condition. A great book for photocopying pages, making notes, learning lines etc. A*. A real Shakespeare classic as cheap as chips.

I love the book, all in script view and came the next day! I read it on holiday so it didn't take up much luggage weight as it weighs near enough nothing!
