I am a student currently studying this shakespeare book at A-Level. Despite not being a 'hard-back' book, the cover is thick and does' ruin when cared for. The scene summaries in the back were unexpected but gratefully accepted. There was a lot of additional information that is useful, especially to a student, and it even refers to a lot of the plays of this book and the various interpretations. The layout of the text is very useful; the script along the top and middle section of the play and bellow is the definition of the shakespearian words and the words of that particle era. If you are a student looking for 'Measure for Measure - Shakespeare' I would absolutely, whole-heartedly recommend this text and would note that a useful, reliable quote is, "some rise by sin and some by virtue fall". Also, at the end in Act 5 where Lucio speaks Latin and in translation reads, "a hood does not make a monk", (very relatable to the common themes in the text of secrecy and hidden identity).
