    UPDATE REVIEW I have just read every Shakespeare play from this edition and than some This has been a goal of mine for some time Some plays I ve read previously for various classes in high school and college, but there was a bit of his stuff I never read before and some stuff I didn t even realize that existed until picking up this book for a second time I got this book n college and this was a pain in the ass to carry around campus, but in the long run, this book was worth getting This is something won t ever get rid of and will use constantly.Some Rereading Thoughts 1 I still don t think Shakespeare is the best writer of all time I feel like too many of his plays were written for higher people rather than what he possibly wanted to write instead He possibly didn t have an education and sometimes I question what plays he even wrote or if they were written by someone else His history plays I really don t care for and sometimes felt like they were for propaganda reasons HOWEVER, regardless of my opinions, I still think Shakespeare is very important to read at least once in your life Nearly every writer after him has quoted him, referenced him, or was inspired by him in some way To read Shakespeare is to fully understand literature in someway.2 I noticed there is a difference in tone with the Elizabethan plays and the Jacobean plays The plays during Elizabeth s time felt like he was still trying everything out for the first time There are a few favorites I have during this time...

    Greenblatt does a freaking amazing job of putting this together The intros provide a fantastic historical perspective going into reading each play, especially for the histories You ll know the families of the play and why they re beefing on each other before you go in You ll know the real conversation Prince Hal and Bolingbroke had that formed the basis of Bolingbroke s death scene in 2 Henry IV You ll know what Queen Elizabeth thought of Richard II I am Richard, know you not that , and you ll read Macbeth anew in the context of the failed Guy Fox terrorist attack As an actor when you deliver the line Two households both alike in dignity, you ll be grounded in real perspective This is the perfect companion for the University student who wants to know his or her Shakespeare better, and for the actor who wants to know what the audience already knew when they first saw these plays performed.In terms of studying the texts, Norton is the way to go Arden is better for performing the ...

    This is your one stop shop for everything Shakespeareawesome historical background information to add context to Shakespeare the man, his times, and the plays themselves I had to buy this text to use for a few college Shakespeare classes, and I am now an English teacher myself I break this out monthly and reread plays, read my annotations, and enjoy the myself thoroughly If you suffered through ...

    I bought this when I was taking a course with Stephen Greenblatt in college a course in which we were studying four of Shakespeare s plays in depth This thing was, I don t know, 90 or something buying each of the plays individually would have come to about 20 total Greenblatt had just come out with this the previous year a...

    It s Shakespeare What needs to be said

    I have a very peculiar experience whenever I read Shakespeare after setting him aside for awhile Shakespeare s English becomes hard for me to understand However, if I start reading again and just proceed without apparent comprehension, everything eventually becomes clear I love Hamlet for the philosophical issues raised Seems Nay, it is I know not seems , Henry V for the strength bestowed Proclaim it throughout this host that he that hath not courage to this fight, let him depart His passport will be made ready and crowns for convey put in his purse We would not die with such a man that fears his fellowship to die with usAnd Crispin Crispian shall ne er go by, from this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered We few, we happy few, we band of brothers For he that sheds his blood with me, today, shall be my brother Be he ne er so vile, this day will gentle his condition and...

    After research this seemed like the best edition to read, though at first I thought Folger may be easier I got a Folger copy of Richard III and it was almost the exact translation as Norton, and I found the way Norton was put together to be easier to read than Folger, though the opposite was supposed to be true My ultimate take away is that I enjoy Shakespeare s stories, but they take some work to read certainly not easy reading, though not difficult, just slow I enjoyed the stories I read Richard III, A Midsummer Night s Dream, Hamlet, King Lear, and sonnets 3, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 29, 30, 36, 40, 60, 98, 116, 129, 130, 152 Overall 4 stars.Richard III a history Least good of the four I read, though enjoyable enough, if not particularly memorable.A Midsummer Night s Dream a comedy Somewhat humorous, enjoyable...

    I have a hypothesis about Shakespeare that may be untestable in this life My hypothesis is that, in order to understand Shakespeare, you must enjoy him Backward, huh Yet, it seems that this reality comes out when you speak with people who like to read this stuff In any case, the Norton is a very good resource doorstop to have in your library Although my scholarship is exceeding feeble, I sometimes disagree with the editor s commentary on certain words His definitions just don t seem to fit the context sometimes, yaknow For example, at the opening of Julius Caesar, when the cobbler says to Marullus, Truly, sir, in respect of a fine workman, I am but, as you would say, a cobbler Greenblatt says he means, in COMPARISON WITH a fine workman While I think the context renders the meaning, DRESSED AS a workman, I...

    Okay I only have to read 7 plays out of this for the course I am in, so here is how I feel about each I have read in order Measure of Measure WHAT WHAT No No thank you Hamlet Yes One of my favorite plays I am kind of ashamed But it s okay I love you, Hamlet A Midsummer Night s Dream Meeehhhhh Twelfth Night AHAHAAHA I love you Viola You are hilarious and strong And you have some great monologues Also, Malvoliolighten up Titus Andronicus Um I didn t know they had Grand Guignol back then Not sure if I am supposed to laugh, and not sure if I care Othello Okay, Othello Do something I understand that this play allows for a lot of space to make varying interpretations a...

    Hamlet This is, in my opinion, the best piece of literature ever written in the English language.Macbeth I never read this play in school, or anything, which is weird because I was an English major in college and took a Shakespeare class I just read it though, in anticipation of seeing the play performed I wanted to understand what I was seeing better There are some really great themes in this play trust, betrayal, the influence a corrupt leader has on his people and there are some great passages Macbeth s ruminations on the brevity and meaninglessness of life is powerful Overall, it didn t wow me, but I think I need to read it a few times so that I can really sink my teeth in it.Othello I love this play because Shakespeare does such a great job of showing how the characters do not do what they say they do Othello says that he trusts his wife, but at ...
