More About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1564, and his birth is traditionally celebrated on April 23. The facts of his life, known from surviving documents, are sparse. He was one of eight children born to John Shakespeare, a merchant of some standing in his community. William probably went to the King's New School in Stratford, but he had no university education. In November 1582, at the age of eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior, who was pregnant with their first child, Susanna. She was born on May 26, 1583. Twins, a boy, Hamnet ( who would die at age eleven), and a girl, Judith, were born in 1585. By 1592 Shakespeare had gone to London working as an actor and already known as a playwright. A rival dramatist, Robert Greene, referred to him as "an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers." Shakespeare became a principal shareholder and playwright of the successful acting troupe, the Lord Chamberlain's Men (later under James I, called the King's Men). In 1599 the Lord Chamberlain's Men built and occupied the Globe Theater in Southwark near the Thames River. Here many of Shakespeare's plays were performed by the most famous actors of his time, including Richard Burbage, Will Kempe, and Robert Armin. In addition to his 37 plays, Shakespeare had a hand in others, including Sir Thomas More and The Two Noble Kinsmen, and he wrote poems, including Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. His 154 sonnets were published, probably without his authorization, in 1609. In 1611 or 1612 he gave up his lodgings in London and devoted more and more time to retirement in Stratford, though he continued writing such plays as The Tempest and Henry VII until about 1613. He died on April 23 1616, and was buried in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford. No collected edition of his plays was published during his life-time, but in 1623 two members of his acting company, John Heminges and Henry Condell, put together the great collection now called the First Folio.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book description does NOT match the book pictured here that I ordered. This copy of Macbeth has NO notes, no illustrations, no background info, no commentary or reading lists...NOTHING. It is just the play text and nothing more. When I looked back at my account order and clicked the "Look Inside" link I saw this
"Just so you know...
This view is of the Paperback edition (2009) from Oxford University Press, USA. The Paperback edition (2011) from Simon & Brown that you originally viewed is the one you'll receive if you click the Add to Cart button on the left."
So be careful what you order - this is very deceiving! I will be returning this Macbeth for the more helpful Oxford University Press copy.

I would highly recommend for children entering a literature class. I purchased this for my son after reading a previous review. Has great overviews, commentaries, character descriptions/roles and the best part is for the acts they have the definitions in the margins for a quick reference. Perfect and very well organized. Highly recommend.

I'm surprised at the organization and "extras" that are in this book. It's helping me out more than I thought for my senior capstone paper for my English major. I also like that it's paperback and thin, with plenty of margins through the play to write a million notes.
