Publishers Description: Here to enhance any young persons enjoyment and understanding of Shakespeare is a new addition to Oxfords definitive paperback series.Twelfth Nightis one of Shakespeares most engaging comedies with characters that remain alive even today: Viola speaks for every young girl in love; drunken rogues like Sir Toby Belch still take advantage of cowardly weaklings like Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and plot the downfall of pompous officials like Malvolio. Like all the volumes in the series, the book contains the full text of the play, notes on the main characters, simple explanations of difficult words and phrases, a scene-by- scene commentary, and a brief biography of the bard. Each page is divided into two columns so that the text and accompanying notes appear side by side. Attractive line drawings appear throughout. Editor Roma Gills sensitivity to first-time readers of Shakespeare makes this series truly accessible. In her introduction she says, "Dont worry too much if you dont fully understand the language at first. A modern poet, T. S. Eliot, said that the best poetry, even in a foreign language, will meansomethingto the reader before it is properly understood."
