Excellent For AS Students,

This review is from: Othello (Arden Shakespeare.Third Series) (Paperback)
Before owning this version of the play, I had to make do with the grossly inferior 'Penguin Classics' version, and was not really enjoying the play. The notes explaining the text were minimal, I couldn't find any underlying themes and, to compund the problems I faced, the entire play was set out in an almost-illegible typeface.
So I decided to invest in the Arden Version of 'Othello', and since it dropped through the letterbox I haven't looked back. It truly is exemplary in terms of its coverage of the meaning of the text and its nuances, its context and overall coverage of the language, characters and themes (how does a 100-plus pages of introductory writing sound?).
Now that I have this book, I'm starting to appreciate Shakespeare's vision for 'Othello', I'm getting As for all my essays, and - God forbid! - I'm even starting to enjoy the play.
