About 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.

Shakespeare's works are wonderful. My favorite is Much Ado About Nothing. This is only ninety nine cents, so I would recomend getting it. I really love the No Fear Shakespeare books, where there is the original text on the right page and a modern translation on the left, but considering it's expensive to buy all of the No Fear Shakespeare books, I recomend just getting this and lookng sparknotes up on the internet. Look, I know there will be people out there who tell me "You'll only be thirteen in three months! You're too young to read Shakespeare!" But, considering my favorite books are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, The Once And Future King by T.H. White, and Elizabeth Peters' mystery novels...I think I can read Shakespeare. So, yeah, this is highly recomended! Mmuch Ado About Nothing is one of the best, and the movie was my first introduction to Shakespeare. I reccomend reading Much Ado first. You won' t be disappointed! Brenna age 12 (since I'm almost 13 I've sometimes posted myself as that age, so some people may have seen me on other classic (or not classic) books as Brenna age thirteen. I'm the same person! :)

It's missing Two Gentlemen of Verona. My copy goes straight from Twelfth Night to Richard II; B&R Samizdat published edition. Very usable and otherwise accurate copy.
