Introducing Shakespeare: A Graphic Guide

by Mick Groom and Piero - £7.99  Icon Books Ltd (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848311152 | ISBN 10: 184831115x

Shakespeare’s absolute pre-eminence is simply unparalleled. His plays pack theatres and provide Hollywood with blockbuster scripts; his works inspire mountains of scholarship and criticism every year. He has given us many of the very words we speak, and even the thoughts we think.
 
Nick Groom and Piero explore how Shakespeare became so famous and influential, and why he is still widely considered the greatest writer ever. They investigate how the Bard has been worshipped at different times and in different places, used and abused to cultural and political ends, and the roots of the intense controversies which have surrounded his work.
 
Much more than a biography or a guide to his plays and sonnets, Introducing Shakespeare is tour through the world of Will and concludes that even after centuries, Shakespeare remains the battlefield on which our very comprehension of humanity is being fought out.
