This pair of comedies join Penguins newly revamped "Pelican Shakespeare" series. Like the others in the line, these offer the full text of the play plus scholarly notes, an introduction, and other goodies. Outstanding for the price. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

I LOVE the Folger series but this particular play - I am not a fan of.

The paperback book I ordered was said to be in "good" condition with some wear. That was not the case. The pages are very yellowed (if not brown) with numerous markings and notes throughout. I'd rate the book "poor" condition. MariePeterson, Redmond, Oregon
