Review "These editions are likely to help not only actors and drama students but also all amateur Shakespeareans including schools and colleges which stage the plays ... What genius to have Simon Russell Beale as a series editor along with two Shakespeare Institute academics, Michael Dobson and Abigail Rokison-Woodall." -- Ink Pellet About the Author William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language.
