Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Review from previous edition "The clearest and simplest explanation of Shakespeare's thought I have yet read."--Auberon Waugh

"Writing with full awareness that the plays were intended for the theatre, Greer is interested in the dialectic of language, performance, audience ... her clarity and her insistence on response make this an admirable book for sixth-formers."--Times Educational Supplement
