The book contains not only the script of the play, but also very good summaries of all the scenes and characters. Before purchasing this Oxford version of what must rank as one of Shakespeare's greatest and well known plays, I looked at a number of different versions of the play, but it was this one that stood out above all others. For example, it is slightly wider than other versions and has plenty of space on each page so that notes can be written in the margins alongside the script. This is an excellent version of the play and ideal for class study. Highly recommended. * 5 star Amazon review *
