    "This is a fantastic classroom tool. I bought this book for my training year to help come up with some interesting ways of teaching Romeo and Juliet and ended up lending it out to seasoned teachers who had got stuck in a language analysis rut."

    "The students really like the newer editions size and format. There is plenty of room to annotate each page, the definitions line up with the text, and each page provides summary and activities. [...] Overall, it is the best way to read and teach Shakespeare at the high school level."

    "The Cambridge School Shakespeare gives the tools most students need to decipher the text on their own. The combination of the page by page glossary and summary are invaluable in giving students confidence in reading and analyzing Shakespeare."
