About the Author
William Shakespeare is the world's greatest ever playwright. Born in 1564, he split his time between Stratford-upon-Avon and London, where he worked as a playwright, poet and actor. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. Shakespeare died in 1616 at the age of fifty-two, leaving three children—Susanna, Hamnet and Judith. The rest is silence.

This is the first play of Shakespeare that I actually gathered up courage to read. I had anticipated that it would require a lot of internet searches to understand it, due to the difference in the language in Shakespeare's day and ours. However, this version provided helpful notes, not just translating it, but also providing a context in which certain remarks and comments can be understood. Moreover, the introduction acquaints us not just with the playwright, but also the lifestyle of the people during his time.
The cover is gorgeous and the book is not bulky at all, meaning you can take with you wherever you go.
I realize now why Shakespeare is so revered, he is truly one of a kind and this book made me laugh so much because it was just so humorous. Shakespeare showcases the temporary madness of love with interchangeability between Hermia and Helena and it manages to be sad and laughable all at once!
The only moral problem is that Demetrius in the end is never released from the love enchantment and how Queen Titania falls back into her relationship with King Oberon even though he manages to steal her Indian boy from her after enchanting her, but then again I think Puck manages to make everyone forget and it is A comedy so I don't think morality or ethics come into question much...
One of the most entertaining, amusing, engaging, wildly metaphorical piece of literature I've ever read, I'd recommend this to anybody who wants to try to read Shakespeare, he is a timeless genius.
