Here to enhance any young person's enjoyment and understanding of Shakespeare is a new addition to Oxford's definitive paperback series.Twelfth Nightis one of Shakespeare's 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 Gill's sensitivity to first-time readers of Shakespeare makes this series truly accessible. In her introduction she says, "Don't worry too much if you don't 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."

Twelfth Night is one of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays in the modern theatre, and this edition places particular emphasis on its theatrical qualities throughout. Peopled with lovers misled either by disguises or their own natures, it combines lyrical melancholy with broad comedy. The introduction analyses its many views of love and the juxtaposition of joy and melancholy, while the detailed commentary pays particular attention to its linguistic subtleties. Music is particularly important in Twelfth Night, and this is the only modern edition to offer material for all the music required in a performance. James Walker has re-edited the existing music from the original sources, and where noe exists has composed settings compatible with the surviving originals.

Teaching Reading Shakespeare is warmly and clearly communicated, and gives ownership of ideas and activities to teachers by open and explicit discussion. John Haddon creates a strong sense of community with teachers, raising many significant and difficult issues, and performing a vital and timely service in doing so. - Simon Thomson, Globe Education, Shakespeare’s Globe John Haddon offers creative, systematic and challenging approaches which don’t bypass the text but engage children with it. He analyses difficulty rather than ignoring it, marrying his own academic understanding with real sensitivity to the pupils’ reactions, and providing practical solutions. - Trevor Wright, Senior Lecturer in Secondary English, University of Worcester, and author of 'How to be a Brilliant English Teacher', also by Routledge. Teaching Reading Shakespeare is for all training and practising secondary teachers who want to help their classes overcome the very real difficulties they experience when they have to ‘do’ Shakespeare. Providing a practical and critical discussion of the ways in which Shakespeare’s plays present problems to the young reader, the book considers how these difficulties might be overcome. It provides guidance on: confronting language difficulties, including ‘old words’, meaning, grammar, rhetoric and allusion; reading the plays as scripts for performance at Key Stage 3 and beyond; using conversation analysis in helping to read and teach Shakespeare; reading the plays in contextual, interpretive and linguistic frameworks required by examinations at GCSE and A Level. At once practical and principled, analytical and anecdotal, drawing on a wide range of critical reading and many examples of classroom encounters between Shakespeare and young readers, Teaching Reading Shakespeare encourages teachers to develop a more informed, reflective and exploratory approach to Shakespeare in schools.

In A Poet's Choice Elizabeth Jennings includes the poems which helped shape her taste - poems she read at school, or discovered in book shops and the library, or pored over as an undergraduate - work which first gave her a taste for the art of poetry and taught the formal and thematic skills she has practised for fifty years. Many of the poems chosen will be familiar to poetry lovers: what is exciting is the way she brings them together in a kind of commonplace book, conveying to a new audience the magic that enchanted her. This anthology is a window on the personal culture of one of our best-loved writers.

Twelfth Night has seldom been off the stage since Shakespeare’s day. It has been performed for its romantic high comedy and its boisterous low comedy; with an emphasis on farce or on autumnal melancholy; as straightforward celebration of heterosexual love and marriage or as exploration of the complexity of gender. David Carnegie and Mark Houlahan’s introduction to the play provides a lively discussion of the play’s performance history and encourages readers to think about stagecraft and the play as a performance text, while the historical appendices provide materials that illuminate different thematic elements of the play. Extended notes interleaved throughout the play present relevant illustrations and expand on mythological, historical, and religious references in the play. The accompanying online text will offer additional commentary on staging alternatives and more extensive visual materials. A collaboration between Broadview Press and the Internet Shakespeare Editions project at the University of Victoria, the editions developed for this series have been comprehensively annotated and draw on the authoritative texts newly edited for the ISE. This innovative series allows readers to access extensive and reliable online resources linked to the print edition.
