English | 8 Mar. 2007 | ISBN: 0521855993, 0521671884 | 176 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
This lively and innovative introduction to Shakespeare promotes active engagement with the plays, rather than recycling factual information. Covering a range of texts, it is divided into seven subject-based chapters: Character; Performance; Texts; Language; Structure; Sources and History, and it does not assume any prior knowledge.
