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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Timon of Athensby William Shakespeare; Dr. Barbara A. Mowat; Paul Werstine

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    The real Timon of Athens lived there in the fifth century BCE, making him a contemporary of Socrates and Pericles.

    Simon & Schuster 2011; US$ 5.99

    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.
