Twelfth Night 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 48 reviews.

I used this copy of Twelfth Night for my Shakespeare class, and it was far superior to the edition the professor had chosen. The text is printed on the right page and notes appear on the left. The trade paperback provides room for a decent sized font and room for notes in the margins. The notes themselves are invaluable to understanding the play, and the extended notes and commentary in the back (illustrations of the stage, notes on modernization of text...) are interesting as well as informative. This rivals texts that are twice the price.

Every B&N Shakespeare has been awesome and this is no exception. Nice, clear text, helpful notations, and interesting articles. Highly recommended.

I just have to say that I laughed when I saw the comment that said, 'So many typos!' Obviously, they do not understand Shakespeare's language. This book is absolutely wonderful. I most definitely recommend  this for students in high school through college. Maybe middle school though it's a very small chance they will understand the concept and comedy. As always, Twelfth Night is underrated by critics. A true classic!!

A great version of the text. The images from various films help students to think about the play as performance. Gayle Gaskill's additions are particularly beneficial and interesting. Best option for Twelfth Night!

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.
