Synopses & Reviews
The Bard's material is pure fodder for Christensen's irrepressible imagination as he paints and sketches queens, kings, knaves, and clowns--at least one character from each of the plays that appear across these pages. 60 illustrations.
A lively retelling of the Bard's plays, his life, and the background on Elizabethan life.
