Download Epub Format ↠´ The Shakespeare Encyclopedia: The Complete Guide to the Man and His Works PDF by ï A.D. Cousins I really enjoyed this It would be a great companion in the classroom when teaching Shakespeare The encyclopedia contains so much information about both Shakespeare s life and his plays, and includes historical information that even I didn t previously know Definitely plan on using this with students in the future.
A very enjoyable book to look at with paintings and photographs of the plays actors Lots and lots of information about the man, each play and the sonnets,than I could take in This will make a very good reference book for all things Shakespeare.
I fell in love with this book at my college library While writing my thesis on Shakespeare, I must have photo copied every page in this book since you could not take reference materials out of the library I bought the book right after a got an A on my thesis.
This book has information on all of Shakespeare s work as well as the man himself The articles are well written, interesting, and I enjoy reading books with pictures and this has lots of them, on every page I just wish sometimes the graphics are related to the article on the page I have a tendency to give away books I like, but I shall keep this one for a long time its a gift from my wife when I want to have an idea what the play is about before going to see it.
Great book to just flip through nice photos and good info I wouldn t necessarily call it essential reading, but it might make a really nice gift for a fan.
