Description

"Shakespeare's Plays: The First Folio" is a beautiful new Penguin edition of William Shakespeare's first folio, with original spelling, getting as close as possible to the original plays for an authentic reading experience. It is published to coincide with the RSC's World Shakespeare Festival, and the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. William Shakespeare was the finest poet and playwright in the English language, whose dramas such as "Hamlet", "Macbeth", "King Lear" and "Romeo and Juliet" are read and watched by millions globally. We are used to reading his work effectively in translation, with modernised spelling, footnotes and glosses. This new Penguin edition allows us to experience the original as it was intended, in a beautiful hardback volume.
