King John - a little played work by William Shakespeare - is well presented with good notes. Unable to have seen a live production of the play, the only DVD available is from the BBC's collected works so together with this text and comprehensive commentary I have enjoyed this play enormously.

For the avoidance of doubt, since Amazon's listing is not entirely clear, this is the tie-in BBC books edition of the play which was published to accompany the Complete Works series in the 80s. The book contains the text used in the production with production photos in colour and black and white and a long article about the making of the production. It shows a respect for the audience's intelligence

The Introductions to volumes of Shakespeare vary hugely in their quality. This, by L A Beaurline, is one of the very best. Wide-ranging, judicious, well-argued, it was a joy to read, sending me off on many trails of happy inspiration. The play itself, of course, is not too bad, either. Most highly recommended.

This book arrived promptly and in perfect condition. It was offered at a reduced price and, in addition, there was no charge for the postage making it a very economical purchase.

Without some kind of explanation the book could not be understood by a non-scholar. Most people I would say need notes and explanations when reading Shakespeare. I admit I could have taken a longer look inside.
