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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gill's introductory commentary in this edition of "Twelfth Night" is just right and, as "Book Addict" says in her review, the annotations are expertly done, particularly for young people reading the play for performance. For a long time I preferred Shakespeare's tragedies to his comedies, and to an extent I still do; but I have found a new appreciation of his comedies, particularly in Twelfth Night. Economical yet unforced, hilarious yet humane, confined yet infinite, clever yet accessible -- such is "Twelfth Night". The play follows the shipwrecked twins, Viola (disguised as the boy Cesario) and Sebastian, in Illyria, where the hilarity of mistaken identity and unwanted love and unrequited love are all turned up on the head and brought to a comedic reveal and reversal. Viola loves Orsino loves Olivia loves Viola, then marries Sebastian, mistaking him for Viola, upsetting Orsino, offending Antonio, etc. The tangled web of comedy in the final two acts is masterfully done, and the side-plot trick on the proud Malvolio is a mis-justice sweetly served.

The Oxford School editions are in my opinion the best laid out annotated Shakespeare publications. Easy format to read since you are not constantly jumping around attempting to find notes, losing your spot and getting frustrated because the notes are distracting you from the content of the text. And if you don't need the notes it is easy and fast to read too.
