In this fast-paced introduction, Ros King reminds us of the beauty and sophistication that make Shakespeare's works a joy for any audience.

With summaries of The Bard's life and background, explanations of the plays' origins and instructions on how to read his poetry, Shakespeare: A Beginner's Guide provides all the tools the general reader needs.
