2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what he wrote, 30 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE COMPLETE PLAYS OF SHAKESPEARE (Illustrated and Commented Edition) All of William Shakespeare's Unabridged Plays AND Yale Critical Analysis) THE COMPLETE ... (The Complete Works of Shakespeare Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Although this is quite comprehensive, the actual text leaves much to be desired at times. I've only read two of the comedies so far but have found several typos. These are, at best, annoying. For example, in Much Ado, Don Pedro is referred to as 'Don Peter' at first then suddenly becomes Don Pedro. At the end of this play, Don John is described as 'fed and gone' - kind of them to give him a good dinner after all his villainy! Try 'fled and gone', which makes a lot more sense. I do find it irritating that often, a character's name is the bottom line of one page and the actual speech begins on the next. Surely it's not rocket science to match these up so that reading the text flows?
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone needing an accurate text to study the plays.
