Introducing Shakespeare : A Graphic Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Introducing Shakespeare : A Graphic Guide Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Piero Piero

Part of the Graphic Guides series

Paperback / softback

Description

Shakespeare's absolute pre-eminence is simply unparalleled.

His plays pack theatres and provide Hollywood with block-buster scripts; his works inspire mountains of scholarship and criticism every year.

He has given us many of the very words we speak, and even some of the thoughts we think. Nick Groom and Piero explore how Shakespeare became so famous and influential, and why he is still widely considered the greatest writer ever.

They investigate how the Bard has been worshiped at different times and in different places, used and abused to cultural and political ends, and the roots of intense controversies which have surrounded his work.

Much more than a biography or a guide to his plays and sonnets, Introducing Shakespeare is a tour through the world of Will and concludes that even after centuries, Shakespeare remains the battlefield on which our very comprehension of humanity is being fought out.
