Responsible for a canon of some 38 plays—many of which are still performed regularly in theatres around the world—and 154 poems, William Shakespeare has been hailed as one of the greatest dramatists of all time. These absorbing volumes survey Shakespeare’s life and literary output, while interweaving a study of the social and cultural climate of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Critiques of the Bard’s works and an in-depth look at the world of British theatre at the time round out the coverage.
