    Finally finished reading this I don t mean that in a thank goodness that s over way, just that it wasn t something I could really tear through Overall, I enjoyed it Shakespeare is one of those, like all mortals, who has his good moments and his not so good moments When he is good, he is brilliant When he is bad, he is terrible And there were a few I can say I did not enjoy, at all.I m probably inviting the Pitchfork and Torches crowd, but I have to say that I have never enjoyed Romeo and Finally finished reading this I don t mean that in a thank goodness that s over way, just that it wasn t something I could really tear through Overall, I enjoyed it Shakespeare is one of those, like all mortals, who has his good moments and his not so good moments When he is good, he is brilliant When he is bad, he is terrible And there were a few I can say I did not enjoy, at all.I m probably inviting the Pitchfork and Torches crowd, but I have to say that I have never enjoyed Romeo and Juliet It isn t the star crossed lovers theme, or the feuding families, or anything really specific, simply that I have, since the first time I read it in high school, wanted to reach in to shake Juliet and smack Romeo upside the head.I wasn t overly fond of Richard III, but much of that stems from the fact that Shakespeare and I are on opposite sides of the fence regarding the Plantagenets and the Tudors Richard III is one of my favorites royals and he was writing plays during the reign of Elizabeth I, Henry VII s granddaughter To some extent, politics must take precedence Still, it s a well written play, and I can enjoy it for that, even if I disagree with the premise.My favorite has to be The Tempest, which I read in high school I love the relationship between Prospero and Ariel It just sets up a great tone and I never tire of reading it.Poems and sonnets, there were ones I enjoyed and those I wasn t quite as fond of Still, that s what is so great about a large body of work like this there is something for everyone and we all can have our opinions about each and every play, poem, and sonnet

    This is a very quick review of the Complete Pelican edition 1 Great value Everything in one volume 2 Quality of annotations pretty good for the most part There will be moments of frustration unnecessary annotation, annotations missing or unclear, etc Various professors have annotated the different plays, so it depends But Penguin strikes just about the right balance between too much and too little annotation, I think, for the person who simply wants to read and enjoy Shakespeare I This is a very quick review of the Complete Pelican edition 1 Great value Everything in one volume 2 Quality of annotations pretty good for the most part There will be moments of frustration unnecessary annotation, annotations missing or unclear, etc Various professors have annotated the different plays, so it depends But Penguin strikes just about the right balance between too much and too little annotation, I think, for the person who simply wants to read and enjoy Shakespeare I ve read three Arden volumes, and they are a bit over annotated, although that could sometimes be a good thing 3 Choice of typeface Adobe Minion A Paper quality B 4 Distance from text to annotation which affects reading speed B But this is because it s a huge volume, and you wouldn t get such a great value if it wasn t a big volume 5 Quality of introductions, etc generally okay I don t spend much time with them
