This is a wonderful introductory Shakespeare book. The full story is laid out in comic style presentaion. Famous quotes are kept as Shakespeare wrote them, but other text is a more modern, lower reading level text. Includes vocabulary list and discussion on the last page.

Each edition in the Harold Bloom Shakespeare series will include the full text of the play, with editorial revisions and commentary by Harold Bloom.
