  • The Two Gentlemen of Veronaby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; Not Available

    At first glance, Shakespeare's early comedy Love's Labor?s Lost simply entertains and amuses. Four young men (one of them a king) withdraw from the world for three years, taking an oath that they will have nothing to do with women. The King of Navarre soon learns, however, that the Princess of France and her ladies are about to arrive. Although he... more...

    Shakespeare's King Lear challenges us with the magnitude, intensity, and sheer duration of the pain that it represents. Its figures harden their hearts, engage in violence, or try to alleviate the suffering of others. Lear himself rages until his sanity cracks. What, then, keeps bringing us back to King Lear ? For all the force of its language,... more...

  • King Johnby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; Not Available

    Like most of Shakespeare?s history plays, King John presents a struggle for the English crown. The struggle this time, however, is strikingly cold-blooded and brutal.
