Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether the fault of tedious teachers or hammy actors, Shakespeare is often seen as dry and impenetrable. In this fast-paced introduction, Ros King sets out to remind us of the sheer beauty and sophistication that can make Shakespeares works a joy for any audience. Exploring his invention, wit, along with his uncanny characterisation, King argues archaic language should be no barrier to the modern reader. With summaries of The Bards life and background, explanations of the plays origins and instructions on how to read his poetry, Shakespeare: A Beginners Guide provides all the tools the general reader needs to embrace the greatest writer in the English language.
