Why has an Elizabethan playwright nicknamed "the Bard of Stratford" endured beyond all other writers in English literature? Many people have never read works like Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, or Romeo and Juliet, yet our language today would be unrecognizable without them. Here you can get a grounding in the key plays, scenes, ideas, and lasting influences of William Shakespeare, as well as details of his life, questions of his true authorship, and his most important themes and motifs. The book covers 50 essential topics in detailed 300-word briefs, along with one-line summations, names of key figures, directions for further study, and full-page illustrations.
