Fogler Shakeseare Library
An absolute gem for 21st century Shakespeare readers! 400 years has brought many changes to life and language… Some words are no longer used while others have completely different meanings now. These books allow you to enjoy Shakespeare plays without the headache of deciphering so much! Clear, easy-to-understand notes, definitions, and summaries help readers to understand antiquated words and phrases, as well as cultural context and nuances of the characters and story. I love the side-by-side layout. Each page of the play script is adjacent to a page featuring explanations, scene-by-scene plot summaries, and illustrations of the scenes from rare books.
