In preparation for a trip to Ashland, I've been slogging my way through the five Shakespeare plays being performed there this season. Twelfth Night was the 5th play I read. What a delight: a ridiculous plot, great characters, much humor. So looking forward to seeing it performed. And now I'm finished reafing Shakespeare until next summer. On the lookout for something very light: perhaps a romantic mysterious western?

I usually don't read Shakespeare, but this one is awesome! A lot of comedy and stuff is going on in the same time.

Read this at school, but this edition is really great for understanding and learning Shakespeare.
