How to Study a Shakespeare Play, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


This book - for a decade the most highly regarded general introduction to Shakespeare - offers students a clear and practical method of approaching a Shakespeare play.

This major new edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include five new chapters that illustrate the nature and impact of the new approaches to Shakespeare that have swept through literary studies in recent years: structuralism, poststructuralism, deconstruction, feminism, New Historicism and Cultural Materialism.

Review by

This book is most useful for undergraduate students of English who need a quick refresher course before starting a heavy course section on the Bard. The sections are clear and concise, to the point and will help get to grip with themes, criticism and the most difficult plays of the canon. Highly recommended.
