Summer Readings: Shakespeare Plays

4 years ago

Yesterday I went with my friend to her childhood libraries, sometimes it is nice to just reminisce on the memories of the innocent past and revisit the places of your youth. There I wandered into their bookstore and got my hands on some classics.I have always wanted to read the Shakespearean plays but never had the opportunity or the time to. It would be great to read the plays of one of the greats who have had such an amazing impact on not only in the English literature but also in the world of theater and the performing arts.

These books were only 50 cents each so I snagged all the ones I could find in this particular collection: Folger Shakespeare Library. What I like about this collection is that it gives you annotations and definitions and explanations while you`re reading to help you better understand the language and content if you`re not well versed in Shakespearean diction.

I picked up four books: "Much Ado About Nothing", "Antony and Cleopatra", "The Temptest", and "A Midsummer Night`s Dream". I wanted the famous "Romeo and Juliet" but sadly they did not have it in this collection. I actually read the entire play of "A Midsummer Night`s Dream" last night in one sitting and truly found a new love for english literature. It was such an easy read. These books are definitely on my Summer Reading List :)

Which Shakespearean play do you like the most? When`s the last time you recreationally read a book?
