  • Julius Caesarby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2014; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare may have written Julius Caesar as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar?s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare?s... more...

  • All's Well That Ends Wellby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare?s All?s Well That Ends Well is the story of its heroine, Helen, more so than the story of Bertram, for whose love she yearns. Helen wins Bertram as her husband despite his lack of interest and higher social standing, but she finds little happiness in the victory as he shuns, deserts, and attempts to betray her. The play suggests some... more...

    Simon & Schuster 2015; US$ 5.99

    Antony and Cleopatra dramatizes a major event in world history: the founding of the Roman Empire. The future first emperor, Octavius Caesar (later called Augustus Caesar), cold-bloodedly manipulates other characters and exercises iron control over himself. At first, he shares power with Mark Antony, Rome?s preeminent military leader, and the weaker... more...

  • The Comedy of Errorsby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Shakespeare?s Comedy of Errors is the slapstick farce of his youth. In it, the lost twin sons of the old merchant Egeon?both named Antipholus?find themselves in Ephesus, without either one even knowing of the other's existence. Meanwhile, Egeon has arrived in search of the son he thinks is still alive?and has been sentenced to death for the "crime"... more...

    Simon & Schuster 2015; US$ 5.99

    Set in the earliest days of the Roman Republic, Coriolanus begins with the common people, or plebeians, in armed revolt against the patricians.

The play explores one reason that Rome prevailed over such vulnerabilities: its reverence... more...

  • Hamletby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2014; US$ 5.99

    Hamlet is Shakespeare?s most popular, and most puzzling, play. It follows the form of a ?revenge tragedy,? in which the hero, Hamlet, seeks vengeance against his father?s murderer, his uncle Claudius, now the king of Denmark. Much of its fascination, however, lies in its uncertainties. Among them: What is the Ghost?Hamlet?s father demanding justice,... more...

  • Henry IV, Part 2by William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    Henry IV, Part 2 is the only Shakespeare play that is a ?sequel,? in the modern sense, to an earlier play of his. Like most sequels, it repeats many elements from the previous work, Henry IV, Part 1 . This play again puts on stage Henry IV?s son, Prince Hal, who continues to conceal his potential greatness by consorting with tavern dwellers, including... more...
