The Complete Works (Oxford Shakespeare) - William Shakespeare,John Jowett,Gary Taylor

Menenius proves himself (and Shakespeare) a master of the abusive character assassination. I mean really, was there ever anyone better at inventively insulting people? It must have been devastating to get on the wrong side of Shakespeare's wit.

The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson
The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson - Emily Dickinson,Rachel Wetzsteon

The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson contains a sizeable sample of the total works of the reclusive poet, who only came to prominence after her death.  Containing 593 poems separated into five different themes, roughly a third of her overall productivity, this collection gives the reader a wonderful look into the talent of a woman who hid her art not only from the world but also her own family.  Besides nearly 600 poems of Dickinson’s work, the reader is given a 25 page introduction to the poet and an analysis of her work by Dr. Rachel Wetzsteon who helps reveal the mysterious artist as best as she can and help the reader understand her work better.  Although neither Wetzsteon’s introduction and analysis nor Dickinson’s work is wanting, the fact that this collection gives only a sample of the poet’s work is its main and only flaw.

Hmmm - could Aufidius be about to do something despicable?
