Is this a real book?
on 23 March 2016
The content is still the great Charles and Mary Lamb's interpretation of Shakespeare for those, like me, who haven't got round to reading the more obscure plays and are still curious about them.
My quibble is with the actual presentation of the "book". It is an Amazon package which replicates a bound college essay; typing style is very basic; Arthur Rackham pictures poorly and cheaply displayed in grey. I was drawn to purchasing the book by the Rackham illustrations but was seriously disappointed. Flimsy cover and generally amateurish feel.
However, if you want simply to read the stories, they are all there for you. Would be an inexpensive reference copy for students or sixth formers.
I have had other books from Amazon that are similar to this. I think we should be warned beforehand that this is in house printing with no frills, please.
