What can be said about Shakespeare that scholars have not written books about already. What i want to point out is this version, this addition, or this translation. I read it cover to cover, with all the annotations. What i liked and what recommend is that, read from cover to cover. You will be taken through the play. Then you will read all the modifications along with the explanations of those modification. They you will read the play again, with all the nuanced changes. Finally you will have learned more than you bargain for.

Although Shakespeare is considered the master of poets and playwrights this piece is a complete repetition of his other tradgedies that involve royalty and planned treachery. Besides being created by this author I believe it would be given not as half as much raved reviews if it's author had been different.
