I got this book when I was a very young girl. I cannot recall the exact age. It was between the ages of 9 to 11 years old. My cousin gave it to me and I will eternally be grateful to her for this gift. It opened up the world of Shakespeare to me. More specifically, I was introduced to Shakespeare alongside critical analysis. It is generally a companion to have by your side for anytime you need a reference to a play or when you just want to find a new play to read.
