Overview

All the news fit to print about Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and many others, plus a great deal more that is definitely not fit to print.
Nothing is sacred in this comical guide to the classics of the English language. Purists will be outraged, scholars will be impressed and students will be eternally grateful for the complete works of Nick Page.
Yet there is a serious side to the spoofs: grace, love, and the power of redemption feature strongly in Shakespeare's works, elements which are exploited here by the author.
