Here art thou real Shakespeare.
The resurgence of interest in Shakespeare's plays--largely due to recent film adaptations--has reminded the world that Shakespearean theatre is a social art form.
This guide focuses on the essence of the spoken word of his plays rather than simply dissecting them. It also explores the cultural and historical contexts for the major plays, offering the director's and actor's perspective in addition to that of the scholar and close reader.
� Each major play is explored in depth, explaining Shakespearean terms
� Offers commentary on the experience of each play on and off stage with attention to language and verse
� Appendixes include Shakespeare's likely collaborations, a glossary, suggested further reading, and resources for viewing live performances and video/audio recordings
� Perfect for students, general readers, theatergoers, and actors
� Published to commemorate Shakespeare's 443rd birthday.
