New to Shakespeare?,

This review is from: King Richard II (Arden Shakespeare.Third Series) (Paperback)
I am new to Shakespeare and find the language quite difficult at times. I'm glad I am persevering and the Arden makes it so much better. It gives good explanations of words and phrases and is easy to follow. Gives good descriptions of the characters and their place in history and the play. There is loads of extra info in the book as a whole, I imagine anyone studying would find this useful. I am doing it for leisure and when I watched Richard11 in the Hollow Crown series it was so much better having read this book.
