About

Overview

Shakespeare’s gift for writing tragedies was powerful indeed. His ability to create epic tragic characters—think Hamlet, Lear, and the star-crossed Romeo and Juliet—and scenarios is virtually unrivalled. Readers examine the Bard’s major tragedies and their significance, and touch upon the state of theatre and dramatic performance in Shakespeare’s England for good measure.
