Praise

“Garber’s reading is wonderful in its depth of insight. . . . A fierce devotion to Shakespeare shines forth from every page.” —The New York Times Book Review

Sharply incisive…. Garber merrily illustrates how modern culture can miss Shakespeare’s original points…. Her book credibly demonstrates that the everchanging timeliness of Shakespeare’s thoughts is what makes them timeless.” —The New York Times

 ”Garber’s approach is eclectic…. She is an inspiring reader.” —The New Yorker  PRAISE FOR MARJORIE GARBER’S SHAKESPEARE AFTER ALL ”Garber’s is the most exhilarating seminar room you’ll ever enter.” –Newsweek ”A return to the times when the critic’s primary function was as an enthusiast, to open up the glories of the written word for the reader.” –The New York Times ”[Garber’s] introduction is an exemplary account of what is known about Shakespeare and how his work has been read and regarded through the centuries, while the individual essays display scrupulous and subtle close reading.” –The New Yorker  ”The best one-volume critical guide to the plays.” –The Miami Herald ”A delight . . . Polished, thoughtful, eminently useful . . . Not only a wonderful guide to the plays, but just as importantly, it’s a guide to the reading of the plays . . . Garber writes elegantly and insightfully . . . The reader seeking an informed guide to each play simply cannot do better.” –The Providence Journal ”An absolute joy . . . Extremely lively and witty . . . Remarkable . . . Authoritative.” –Tuscon Citizen ”Garber keeps her eye on the goal, to illuminate the experience of reading and seeing the plays, and achieves it with quiet efficiency.” –San Jose Mercury News ”Stimulating and informative.” –The Charlotte Observer
