    Highly recommended for the serious Shakespearean student

    I esp. liked being able to read 2 pages side-by-side on my NookColor.
    The detailed introduction was extremely helpful, and the selected modern wordage beside the Elizabethan words in each scene added considerable clarity to the play.
    I've been to the Folger Library in D.C., and recognize the skill and accuracy used in their publications. I will order other plays in the series with confidence.

    Well.

    Although some of the interpretations were >>interesting<< (to say the least) and Orsino hardly ever wears a shirt (oh wait... he NEVER wears a shirt) it's very good. The play is probably one of my favorite Shakespeare plays, so I had high expectations and they weren't disappointed. Watch out for the cleavage though. It might stick you in the eye or something.

    A true scapegoat we should pay attention to

    This comedy written by William Shakespeare has a connotation which has a wide range of meaning. Who is sacrificed through out play misunderstood as a person who has a hypocrite personalities and unacceptable disposition among the characters of Twelfth Night. In superficial level, we as a reader easy to make a conclusion that he is a man should be penalized, and not only characters within the Twelfth Night mocking at him but also we the readers sardonic at his eccentric behaviors after read the Olivia's letter which is the counterfeit. Thus, we consider the punishment that Malvolio received is something justified and axiomatically accepted one. However, that sort of point of view is not rightful judgement. We should aware that people who made this clandestine of fake letter to make fun of Malvolio is truly a undiscovered villain. There's a lesson implied on the play that we as a human being should always pay attention to minors who overwhelmed by huge mainstream.
