Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
A edição é bela, e a capa imitando couro é bem feita. Não há notas de rodapé, mas possui um texto introdutório bem interessante e extenso, e o livro é bom de ler mesmo com as letras não muito grandes.
Se a capa fosse um pouquinho mais rígida, levava cinco estrelas. Sobre Shakespeare nem há o que falar, se você não leu ainda, está perdendo a oportunidade de explorar um profundo conhecedor das emoções humanas, um escritor que faz parte do alicerce da literatura moderna.
Accomplishes what you would expect. Due to its size, you can read one of the plays in a mere 20 pages (in contrast to the single plays which are often sold as 200 page books). The downside is that you do not (for obvious reasons) get as much information and background for each play, and you also sacrifice having the close translations of words, passages, historical/mythical allusions, and proverbs. There is a glossary in the back, yet I would not recommend this kind of collection to someone who has difficulty comprehending Shakespeare. Luckily I have read enough to get through the plays without translation, but I still feel as though I missed some things in terms of allusions and archaic puns and proverbs.
The bound edition is quite nice. The kindle version seems to be from Gutenberg org and is not the best version. Four for the contents, and deduct 1 for terrible formatting. There must be a kindle version that looks better and has at least some footnotes. Unfortunately I cant afford the Oxford version of this "collected works"; still it was only 99cents , so I guess it was almost to be expected. I wish they would indicate if it comes from Gutenberg.
IT"S BIG. IT"S HEAVY. IT"S Shakespeare. I had to buy or request at library smaller single plays to read in bed, this is a very good collection with some excellent notes for a student of, BUT IT's VERYVERY HEAVY.
Well edited and well brought out on high quality paper. However, when you consider buying a complete Shakespeare, think whether you want one with explanatory footnotes or not. If you do, buy the Norton or Pelican edition. If you want the bare text, buy the Oxford or Arden, which have a brief lexicon in back.
I love this. Reading Shakespeare is a challenge, and the only way this could be improved is to have a sort of glossary or footnotes to help decode some of the more difficuly language. All in all an excellent collection.
