William Shakespeare on the Art of Love: The Illustrated Edition of the Most Beautiful Love Passages in Shakespeare's Plays and Poetry

William Shakespeare on the Art of Love: The Illustrated Edition of the Most Beautiful Love Passages in Shakespeare's Plays and Poetry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world may change—but Shakespeares words are eternal. No writer has expressed the truth of our human condition with as much eloquence as he, or captured the essence of love quite as beautifully. Here, in a spectacular keepsake volume to treasure, are Shakespeares most wonderful writings on love in all its aspects and moods. Superbly illustrated with 75 exquisite artworks, it features an illuminating introduction and brilliant commentary throughout by a Shakespeare scholar. Here are the most dramatic and glorious passages from the plays, with background on their theatrical context, as well as excerpts from his poems and a discussion of some of their most enduring mysteries.

From the star-crossed Romeo and Juliet to the witty, sparring Beatrice and Benedick, from the simmering jealousy of Othello to the enigmatic Dark Lady of the Sonnets, there is so much here to touch our hearts, minds, and spirits.
