When life becomes one big drama, let history’s greatest life coach help you rewrite it. Bard expert Laurie Maguire brings her knowledge and love of Shakespeare to bear on the great-and small-challenges that all readers face today. As she illustrates in this witty, accessible, and unique self-help book, all one really needs is Shakespeare when it comes to understanding life. Covering such universal subjects as identity, the battle of the sexes, family relationships, love, loss and death, Maguire shows how the dilemmas illustrated in Shakespeare’s plays can help readers explore their own emotions and judgments. Together, Maguire and Shakespeare offer suggestions, comfort, empathy, and encouragement as they set out a timeless principle for living. To read Shakespeare is to understand what it means to be human. To read Where There’s a Will There’s a Way is to better understand how to deal with it.
Laurie Maguire is a Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, where she teaches English literature. She has written numerous articles on Elizabethan drama, women’s studies, and theater, and has lectured throughout the United States.
