Errors on first page...I'd like to give no stars...,
This review is from: Twelfth Night (Kindle Edition)
I was impressed by the whole Kindle experience, but NOT very impressed by the quality of the words in this free edition of 'Twelfth Night':
'O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound,'
is how I remembered it, but this Kindle Version has:
'O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet south,'
Not a lot of help, if one is studying the text for an examination. Does Amazon/Kindle have any responsibility for the quality of the Kindle-branded editions they make available?

This is not so much an error as a textual variant. 'South' was first proposed by Alexander Pope in the early C18, and is a reading found in several modern editions, including what is probably the most authoritative of them all - the Arden.
