Product Details


“An obvious candidate to take to a desert island, along with Shakespeare and the Bible.”—Daily Telegraph

“This fascinating and fun volume delves into all things Shakespeare and will appeal to novices and experts alike… light, accessible, and engaging… Included in this book are synopses of all of Shakespeare’s works and his life and times, key influences, language and style, controversies, and famous quotations. The authors also include modern-day adaptations of Shakespeare’s works and endless related miscellanea… An entertaining and highly informative read, this is essential for students and scholars, theatergoers wanting to familiarize themselves with a particular work, and general readers who are simply curious about one of the most famous and influential playwrights of all time.”—Library Journal

“A good overview, with historical context, coverage of each play and brief rebuttals to the various theories suggesting that the guy from Stratford named William Shakespeare isn’t the author of the plays.”—Iowa City Press-Citizen
