Description
Everyone knows his name, and most English speakers have studied him at some point, but the scope of William Shakespeare's influence on our culture is so vast that we can all be forgiven for not remembering nearly as much about the Bard as we pretend to. This easy-to-use, entertaining refresher course includes examples of the words and phrases we owe to Shakespeare—from bandit and moonbeam to "in my mind's eye" and "dead as a doornail"—as well as synopses of his most famous plays, a glossary of his most memorable characters, details of Shakespeare's own sparsely documented life (and where some interpreters assume too much), and an index of oft-quoted lines. Perfect for the student as well as for the former student who can now better appreciate the value of the lessons, the book is presented in a printed laminated cover that fits nicely in the hand.
