About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare s working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

By A. Hsiao on April 9, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Shakespeare has awesome plays so this book not only interprets it but also gives you the context. The negative to this book is that the context gets really boring and is pretty hard to understand. You will need someone who understands the language or else it will be hard for you to decipher what the author is talking about. The play is a good play. It is a romantic comedy. So, if you like these types of books/plays then this is definitely something for you. I personally do not like Shakespeare all that much but this play was not bad at all. Overall, I would recommend.

I had never purchased a "casebook" before, until it was required for class. This series presents the play plus articles and background information relating to the play, its subject matter and setting. This one in particular has documents concerning topics such as the Faerie Queen, Robin Goodfellow and buggery. Trust an M.A. of English, this is good stuff.
