Shakespeare : A Beginner's Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Shakespeare : A Beginner's Guide Paperback / softback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series

Paperback / softback

Description

Whether the fault of tedious teachers or hammy actors, Shakespeare is often seen as dry and impenetrable.

In this fast-paced introduction, Ros King sets out to remind us of the sheer beauty and sophistication that can make Shakespeare's works a joy for any audience.

Exploring his invention, wit, along with his uncanny characterisation, King argues archaic language should be no barrier to the modern reader.

With summaries of The Bard's life and background, explanations of the plays' origins, and instructions on how to read his poetry, Shakespeare: A Beginner's Guide provides all the tools the general reader needs to embrace our greatest writer.
