From the Publisher"This enriching book furnishes foundational knowledge that Shakespeare students must know. It belongs in every library's core Shakespeare holdings. Essential."
"The volume as a whole is superbly innovative and serves as an encouraging call to other scholars—both classical and Shakespearean—to continue the work it has so auspiciously begun."
-Joanna A. Giuttari, Renaissance Quarterly
"If you think that a book called Shakespeare and the Classics cannot be original or challenging, you are wrong. Charles Martindale and A.B. Taylor edit essays by various scholars, some established, some just starting out, that will set you to rethinking Seneca, Plutarch, Plautus, and others on whom Shakespeare relied...Stimulating."
-Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
"This volume is a welcome addition to the Shakespearian shelf."
-Dana F. Sutton, The University of California, Irvine, The Classical Bulletin
"Charles Martindale and A. B. Taylor's new collection of essays on Shakespeare and the Classics is a welcome contribution to this new wave of scholarship by a group of critics well-known in the field...The essays...help capture the truly original characteristic of Shakespeare's imagination as it interacts with the past that nourished it. The tradition that emerges through these essays is itself a living and growing force, a conversation that continues today."
-Maggie Kilgour, Department of English, McGill University, International Journal of the Classic Tradition
