King Richard II Kindle free version.

Very good, accurate version. Read it and then used as a reference while watching a BBC film version of this play.

Of note, the formatting can be a bit odd, especially if you are zooming in a bit. Shakespeare's plays have a very specific format which can be seen very accurately on the farthest out zoom, but it wraps the text on closer zoom.

But I didn't notice a single error from the actual print version (which I only have in a very large Complete Works collection). Highly recommended, especially for the price!

Sing song dialog through most of the play makes for an entertaining read. Kindle version has several spelling and formatting errors. But as a free intro to the tetrad, it is definitely worth downloading.

Shakespeare was, is, and will always been a dead living genius. (Dead = he's physically died. / Living = he lives through his written words. / Genius = his writing stands the test of time via quality, depth, power, meaning, truth, and purpose).

Richard II - An economical purchase. I buy these plays before I listen or see them so I better understand of the action in the liveperformance. This is a cheap version. It could be better if there were analysis but I get that from Flocknote and Wikipedia. I reccommen buy.

Assuming you have already decided to read this play but want to know how it looks on a kindle. It's not awesome. But it's not overly distracting, either. There's no floating footnotes to break up text which some editions annoyingly feature, but no clickable, embedded footnotes either, which some editions offer. Just a straightforward copy of the text itself without any extra notes whatsoever. Great for the $$.

There was no introduction or notes to help with understanding words or characters. Fortunately I had recently read his previous plays about Richard's predecessors, so I didn't need many notes. If your new at reading Shakespeare I wouldn't recommend this edition of the book.

The Bantam version of any Shakespeare work includes scholarly descriptions of the work, including the historical context. It also includes a description of various theatrical and cinematic presentation. Finally, the text of the play includes numerous definitions of archaic terms.

As the result of the PBS series, I decided to read the play to better understand some of the exchanges between characters, etc. No footnotes, no stage direction, no preface - just the play. Great!
