Shakespeare Handbooks

The Shakespeare Handbooks are introductory guides to each of the key plays that encourage students to develop an informed and independent understanding of the texts. Their central feature is a scene-by-scene commentary that considers the potential of the action and dialogue in performance and provides an experience as close to a theatre visit as possible in print. A brief history of the text and early performances, a selection of contextual documents illuminating the origins of the play, case studies of key performances and productions, and a wide sampling of critical opinion with an annotated list for further reading complete each volume in this series. These books will give students an up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to the study of Shakespeare.
