How To Read Shakespeare Paperback / softback

Part of the How to Read series


Shakespeare's legacy is all around us - in our books and our films, in our politics and in our everyday speech.

With his words he has formed our world, and his influence has been greater than that of any other writer.

So what makes Shakespeare's plays so powerful? Taking a single word from each of the seven most influential plays, Nicholas Royle opens up the delights and complexities of Shakespeare's language for the reader, teaching us to discover his work anew.
