E.E.H., July 20, 2007 (view all comments by E.E.H.)
Very aptly named book. I used this book in my recent goal to read all of Shakespeare's plays. There is a section on each play, including two recently added to the canon. Each section includes a synopsis, description of characters, act by act plot summary, and notes on the written and performed play. This book is heavily illustrated. There is hardly a page without a picture or two. Great for helping you read the plays (or helping you avoid reading them.) My only complaint is that the print is smaller than normal.
