Shakespeare Handbooks

The Shakespeare Handbooks are student-friendly introductory guides which offer a fresh approach to understanding the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in performance. The commentary at the heart of each volume explores the play’s theatrical potential, providing an experience as close as possible to seeing it in the theatre. Ideal for students and teachers of Literature and Theatre, as well as actors and directors, the overall aim is to help a reader reach an independent and well-informed view of each play by imagining how it might be rehearsed or performed on stage.
