Review:

'Ros King has produced a superb introduction, not just to Shakespeare's skill and significance but to the rich playfulness in which his works engage us. This is a beginner's guide from which most experts could learn a great deal too.' --Michael Dobson, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Birkbeck and editor of The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare

'I love this book... infinitely accessible... A fantastic introduction to students of Shakespeare, at the same time a fun and delicious refreshing course for actors, directors, and scholars working on Shakespeare's plays... King is a breath of fresh air.' --Danny Scheie, actor, director, and Professor of Drama at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
