Reviews: I bought this for my A level English Literature classes. It is an amazing book. On each double page spread it has one side of shakespearean words and an overview of the page and the other side is the actual text.
It is helping me a great deal with my Alevel and I deffinately recommend this.
It contains quotes, activities, questions, themes, sample essays. And as the review states on one side of the page is words/phrases and their literal meaning with an overview and on the other side the actual text. The text is about 260 pages, the rest is stuff designed to help you develop your understanding of the text as a whole.
