About This Item
Simon & Schuster NY, 1995. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Illustrated by Antony Maitland. "Shakespeare was writing at speed and in cut-throat competition with a wealth of other playwrights. His actors were men, his plots were all borrowed, his props and scenery rudimentary. There were fashions and conventions to be followed, and the latest popular song never went amiss if it could be worked into the action. But out of this came the great plays that we find as exciting today as ever... Young people ...starting to read Shakespeare will find the stories easy to follow, and will absorb some of the glorious vitality of Shakepeare's language. [Dust Jacket] Plays include: 'Romeo and Juliet;' 'Henry the Fifth;' 'Midsummer Night's Dream;' 'Julius Caesar;' 'Hamlet;' 'Othello;' 'King Lear;' and, 'Macbeth.' STATED FIRST UNITED STATES EDITION.
