Superbly illustrated with 75 exquisite artworks, it features an illuminating introduction and brilliant commentary throughout by a Shakespeare scholar. Here are the most dramatic and glorious passages from the plays, with background on their theatrical context, as well as excerpts from his poems and a discussion of some of their most enduring mysteries.

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.
