Reviews

Teaching Shakespeare provides an overview of the major elements involved in teaching Shakespeare as well as a critical review of issues in the development of Shakespeare studies. This handbook for teachers offers detailed examples of successful classroom practice, demonstrating how Shakespeare's language and dramaturgy can be studied closely in ways that students find enjoyable and interesting. Practical examples are given from the plays most often taught in schools, but the principles can be applied equally to the less frequently studied plays.
