Overview

William Shakespeare is considered the greatest playwright and poet in history not merely for his extraordinary gift for language, but more because "he was also the world's greatest psychologist, with an uncanny ability to see and describe people's most subtle emotional states," as renowned author, psychologist, and Shakespearean scholar George Weinberg says in his introduction to this volume.

Nowhere are the Bard's insights more apparent than in his writings on that most sublime of human endeavors: love. No human being has ever captured the beauty, intensity, sadness, power, and magic of love so perfectly. All the wondrous guises of love are presented here, from courtship to parting, from passion to jealousy, from unrequited love to the kiss. Throughout, the special genius of William Shakespeare shines through.
