For Those of Us Who Actually Choose to Read Shakespeare!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Oxford Shakespeare: Othello (Paperback)
The Oxford Shakespeares are, I think, an excellent first choice for non-academic readers such as myself. The introduction is helpful, readable and - most importantly for those of us who are actually reading for pleasure - actually adds to one's enjoyment of the play.
Tone of footnotes and introduction is, thankfully, never of awful dumbing-down that besets the Macmillan current editions,
References are all on the page rather than collected at the back of the book,
Paper is of a high quality,
Binding is solid,
Typeface is clear and elegant.
