Written in a straightforward, engaging style, Simply Shakespeare actively engages the reader in understanding and appreciating Shakespeare's language and intricate stagecraft. Accessible writing style neither talks down to readers nor over their heads. Introduction: "How to Read Shakespeare" outlines strategies readers can adopt to make Shakespeare easier to understand. Four chapters on language focus on the single greatest hurdle for readers: language. The chapters deal with words, imagery (literal and figurative), rhetoric, and humor. Boxed material highlights major points in any topic discussed. Test Cases analyze key passages in depth. Bulleted lists break up heavy prose passages allowing readers to concentrate on key material, making content more accessible. A Resources Section provides an annotated list of websites and books-emphasizing the best resources and latest scholarship. Glossary covers 30 Shakespearean terms most readers have trouble with. For those interested in gaining a clear understanding of Shakespeare and his art.
