DetailsComedy, tragedy, and history are masterfully represented in this anthology of Shakespeare's works.Features :"A Midsummer Night's Dream, " a celebration of the imaginative powers of love;"Romeo and Juliet, "a gripping and passionate romantic drama; and"Richard III, " a portrait of a villain who seduces, betrays, and murders his way to the throne.Includes informative footnotes.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: "He was not of an age, but for all time," declared Ben Jonson of his contemporary, William Shakespeare (15641616). Jonson's praise is especially prescient, since at the turn of the 17th century Shakespeare was but one of many popular London playwrights and none of his dramas were printed in his lifetime. The reason so many of his works survive is because two of his actor friends, with the assistance of Jonson, assembled and published the First Folio edition of 1623.
