This book is a one-stop-shop for the busy undergraduate studying Shakespeare.

The book's unique play-based structure and character-centre approach allows students to easily navigate the material.

The flexibility of the design allows students to either read cover-to- cover, target a specific play, or explore elements of a narrative unit such as imagery or characterisation.The reader will gain quickly a full grasp of the kind of dramatist William Shakespeare was - and is.
