Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who was Shakespeare, and why has his work remained so compelling to us for so many centuries? With conversational text, informative sidebars, and full-color photographs, The Young Persons Guide to Shakespeare makes Shakespeares life and work accessible to young readers. Topics addressed include Shakespeares youth, marriage, and family life; the fascinating story of the Globe Theatre and Shakespeares life as a playwright and actor in London; an introduction to Shakespeares plays and the challenges of performing them; and Shakespeares enduring legacy--the enormous influence he still holds over the arts, culture, language, and society hundreds of years later.

Synopsis:

Provides information about William Shakespeare's family life and work as a playwright and actor, summaries of his works, and details and challenges of staging Shakespearean productions. Includes a CD with performances from selected Shakespearean plays and sonnets by Britain's Royal Shakespeare Company.
