To be honest, I've only read The Two Noble Kinsmen out of this lot, though I read all of the essays on the other plays. I intend to read the others, but I'm saving them for the rainy season. ;)

I liked this edition! I love reading scholarly essays in these kind of "Classics" collections, and the ones that they chose for this edition were all very interesting.

The Two Noble Kinsmen itself was much more interesting than I was expecting.

Recommends it for: Old West Cowboys
I read this for my college Shakespeare 2 class (wanted to skip all that I'd read for high school and run with the obscure); and later saw a live-action play version at the Intiman Theater in Seattle. They did a cowboy version with a little Asian gal as Cymbeline. Not my favorite, but I think everyone needs to go see a live-action Shakespeare play at least once (preferably one that doesn't suck as much).
