A Fairly Not-Intimidating First Shakespearean Read,
This review is from: A Midsummer Night's Dream (Folger Shakespeare Library) (Paperback)
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" was the first Shakespearean work (aside from a few sonnets) I read. It was throughly enjoyable, although none of it was all that funny. Our teacher did continually call the boy who played Bottom an ass-head, which I'm sure enhanced the experience for me. The plot is pretty simple, though it being Shakespearean, it could be a little difficult to keep track of. This particular edition I found helpful. It includes definitions of some unknown words, as well as a section of famous quotes, which I found quite interesting. In general, I liked the play, and the Folger Shakespeare Library made the experience better.
