Review by: Dream Catcher Publishing House on April 10, 2018 :
Hello, My name is Timothy Lasiter and I approve this book. First off I appreciate the Artist that tries to go into the mind of an author and draw in great detail of the original writer. this is a poem by Shakespeare, and as we all know those are some big shoes to fill. The art on the pages go into great depth as to how Shakespeare felt in each scene. I get it, hope everyone gets it too. Great job, keep up the good work.
