I really recommend this edition of "The Merchant of Venice" -- in fact, all of the New Cambridge Shakespeare. They are easily readable editions, and the extensive frontmatter -- introduction, commentary, background to the play, performance history -- are all wonderful, and add a lot to the experience. I recently purchased this edition of "The Merchant of Venice" along with the Arkangel CD of the play, and listened along while reading. It was a wonderful way to approach the play. And when I saw the recent production here in New York with F. Murray Abraham in the role of Shylock, I was very well prepared. Having read and listened to the play before seeing it made the whole experience much deeper.

Initially I purchased the free version, but I found myself constantly needing to research various texts, or not bothering and remaining ignorant. Reading the introduction, etc. of this edition greatly reduced the need to research while reading the book, but when I did, more often than not there would be a footnote providing an answer. ALSO: footnotes are easily accessible AND it's only one tap to return to your spot/page.
This was the first Shakespeare I paid to purchase, but it certainly won't be my last.
