Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Part of the "Oxford School Shakespeare" series, Richard II is annotated and comes complete with genealogies, background notes, and plot summaries. The concept is certainly exemplary in scope, but the execution falls short. The explanatory notes are disjointedly organized and the illustrations give it the feel of a grade school effort. The most off-putting however, is the name change of Henry Bolingbroke (later Henry IV) to "Bullingbrook." After four centuries of the former, why now?

Meet the Author

Widely esteemed as the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an actor and theatrical producer in addition to writing plays and sonnets. Dubbed "The Bard of Avon," Shakespeare oversaw the building of the Globe Theatre in London, where a number of his plays were staged, the best-known of which include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth. The First Folio, a printed book of 36 of his comedies, tragedies, and history plays, was published in 1623.
