Featuring the images of some of the world's most famous stage and film actors, these additions to the all-new Oxford School Shakespeare introduce--and enthrall--young people to one of the greatest writers of all time. This season brings revised editions of five of the Bard's most famous plays--As You Like It, Othello, Hamlet, Love's Labour Lost and The Taming of the Shrew.
Designed specifically for students unfamiliar with Shakespeare's rich literary legacy, these new editions present Shakespeare's sometimes-intimidating Middle English in a way that is easy-to-read and engaging for ages twelve and up. The notes and introductions have been completely revised, allowing unprecedented clarity and accessibility. Featuring new covers and new illustrations--including photos from recent productions of Shakespeare's plays from around the world--Oxford School Shakespeare brings all the pleasure of these literary treasures to life.

Book Description:

This edition tells the story of Hamlet in production, from Burbage at the Globe to Branagh on film, relating stage interpretations to developments in the theatre, in literary criticism and in society. The detailed stage history records an ongoing process of discovery, as successive performers have found what it is in the play that will speak most powerfully to the audiences of their own times. The introduction focuses not only on star Hamlets, but on whole productions of the play including supporting players and, in this century, direction and design.

From the Publisher:

This book is perfect for AP classes and is often selected for inclusion on the AP exam. The notes, reading pointers, and vocabulary in this addition will also help students at a lower reading level get the most out of these classics.
