This is an introduction to the life and work of William Shakespeare. The book covers every aspect of the genius of Shakespeare, revealing the world he lived in, examining his controversial life, exploring his rich and varied works, and meeting his fascinating characters. A description is given of how Shakespeare's plays were performed when he was alive, and a look behind the scenes is given as a modern drama company prepares to stage a new production. A reference section contains plot summaries, glossaries and a Shakespeare quiz. The book is highly illustrated with Elizabethan drawings, reproductions of historical manuscripts, designs and posters.
