(Applause Books). These popular editions allow the reader and student to look beyond the scholarly reading text to the more sensuous, more collaborative, more malleable performance text which emerges in conjunction with the commentary and notes. Each note, each gloss, each commentary reflects the stage life of the play with constant reference to the challenge of the text in performance. Readers will not only discover an enlivened Shakespeare, they will be empowered to rehearse and direct their own productions of the imagination in the process.

Very entertaining play by Shakespeare. It's not so deep as his tragedies but the plot is comfortably fast and intriguing. This play is very humorous. Portia is a really attractive heroine full of wit and courage.
