Going to a Shakespeare play? Want to get up to speed before the show? If so, here is the book that reveals just what you need to know to enhance your enjoyment of 42 plays written by (or associated with) the playwright. There are many places to find exhaustive analysis of plot and character, but why spoil the fun? This author believes that Shakespeare plays are there to be enjoyed, not worshipped; read quietly in your favourite armchair, not tortured in the classroom. People were Shakespeare's interest and people haven't changed much over the years. His characters are all alive and mostly well, living down the street, hanging out in the bar, arguing in our legislatures, fighting our wars. If you want to know these people better, Shakespeare's the boy for you; and this book is your guide to SHAKESPEARE AND US.
