Shakespeare Handbooks are
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.
