The Globe Guide to Shakespeare: The plays, the productions, the life at Wordery for £2.88

Found 1st Mar
This is a fantastic book to dip in and out of. It has indepth overviews of all of Shakespeare's plays, along with essays and other useful pieces. It also includes information on his sonnets and about the man himself.

Running to 700 pages, this is a bargain at under £3. My copy turned up last week and I am very happy with it. The next cheapest I've seen is £7 at The Works.

Description from Globe website:

The Globe Guide to Shakespeare is the ultimate companion to the life and work of the world's greatest playwright. At it's heart are guides to all thirty-nine plays, each with a synopsis, full character list, stage history covering keynote productions worldwide, and critical essay. A unique additional feature are reviews of the best DVDs and downloads, from Laurence Olivier to Joss Whedon, Kurosawa to Baz Luhrman.

The book also provides detailed introductions to Shakespeare's sonnets and the narrative poems, and offers fascinating accounts of the Bard's life and contemporary staging of the plays, his language, sources, colleagues and co-writers.

The Globe Guide is an essential reference for theatregoers and students alike, and a celebration of all things Shakespearian.
