Sterling Publishing has a beautiful collection of books in their Sterling Signature Shakespeare. I have copies of Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado About Nothing. Although each book has a separate editor who wrote the introduction to the play, they do have several things in common. Each volume contains the same commentary, "Shakespeare and His England" by Series Editor David Scott Kastan, one of the world's leading experts on Shakespeare. There is a chronology, a section about the words in the play, a key to the text, notes, and, along with the play itself, sections that discuss significant performances, and further reading.
So, to celebrate William Shakespeare's birthday, Sterling Publishing will send one lucky winner a copy of their selected title. If you love one of those four plays, Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, or Much Ado About Nothing, you might want to enter to win one of these gorgeous books.
I'm going to make it easy for you. Please comment on the blog. Tell me which play you would like to win, and include your email address. I'll select the winner Thursday evening, April 25, and email you so I can get your mailing address. You must live in the U.S. to win.
I'll admit, this giveaway is a little unusual for my blog, so there might not be too many entries. You have a good chance to win, as long as you follow the directions. Good luck!
