Love, sex, religion, revenge, intrigue: William Shakespeare has it all, and who better to portray the works of the Bard, tabloid-style, than Nick Page, author of ‘The Tabloid Bible’?
All the news fit to print about Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and many others, plus a great deal more that is definitely not fit to print.
Nothing is sacred in this hilarious, but very well researched, guide to the classics of the English language. Purists will be outraged, scholars will be impressed and students will be eternally grateful for the complete works of Nick Page. For everyone who enjoyed ‘The Tabloid Bible ‘or has seen the Reduced Shakespeare Company perform, here is a highly original publishing idea which is set to become a classic – indeed, as famous as the original works of the Bard himself.
Yet there is a serious side to the spoofs: grace, love, and the power of redemption feature strongly in Shakespeare’s works, elements exploited by Nick Page with the same rapier-like wit which marked ‘The Tabloid Bible’.
