Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry V and Merchant of Venice are two wonderful additions to the all-new Oxford School Shakespeare, the series teachers have chosen time and again as the preferred introduction to the Bard's works. Designed specifically for students unfamiliar with Shakespeare's rich literary legacy, these new editions present Shakespeare's sometimes-intimidating Middle English in a way that is easy-to-read and engaging for ages twelve and up. The notes and introductions have been completely revised, allowing unprecedented clarity and accessibility. Featuring new covers and new illustrations-including photos from recent productions of Shakespeare's plays from around the world, Oxford School Shakespeare brings all the pleasure of these literary treasures to life: "If this be magic, let it be an art lawful as eating" (The Winter's Tale).

Synopsis:

For this new edition, the text of the play, the notes, and the introductory matter have all been revised so as to make them clearer and more accessible. In addition, the entire text of the book has been redesigned and reset to make it easier to read. The illustrations have been completely redrawn, photographs of recent stage production have been included and there is a new, attractive cover design.
