Description

"Williams has a brilliant signature style. . . . All the adoring fans of her Tales from Shakespeare will rejoice, and new ones will join in the applause." -- Kirkus Reviews Grab a seat as Marcia Williams wields her popular comic-book style to bring As You Like It, King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice, and Richard III vividly to life while evoking the mood, mischief, and manners of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Elizabethan theater. As in her previous volume Tales from Shakespeare, Williams blends her own storytelling skill with Shakespeare's rich dialogue to make these masterpieces accessible to even the most reluctant reader. Bravo!

About Marcia Williams

Marcia Williams went to visit London's Globe Theatre while it was being rebuilt. "It wasn't until I was actually there," she says," that the full impact of the environment hit me. Elizabethan actors didn't rehearse; and the audience was encouraged to cheer when they liked something and to shout (and throw things) when they didn't. It must have been quite a scene!"
