Meet the Author

Widely esteemed as the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an actor and theatrical producer in addition to writing plays and sonnets. Dubbed "The Bard of Avon," Shakespeare oversaw the building of the Globe Theatre in London, where a number of his plays were staged, the best-known of which include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth. The First Folio, a printed book of 36 of his comedies, tragedies, and history plays, was published in 1623.

The story is very compelling for a Shakespeare student such as myself. It certainly isn't my favorite from the Bard, however, it is still a classic! I am taking a "Measure for Measure" English elective for my Senior year (high school), so it was not something I purchased just by my own curiosity. The "Duke of dark corners" will either have you cheering for him in the end, or sitting in disgust for the strange chaos/resolution he creates. Pompey Bum, Mistress Overdone, and Lucio never cease to please with their bawdy humor. Angelo will displease for his hipocricy and badly timed lusting. Isabella's clever innocence compared to brother Claudio's mistakes and wise words make for an interesting pair of siblings. Shakespeare has much to offer - go for it!
