This entertaining and accessible guide to the life and works of Shakespeare is a treasure trove that nobody should be without.
The works of William Shakespeare have been a permanent feature in schools for years, and almost everybody can boast even a basic knowledge of his life and craft. But, with thirty-eight plays, over 150 sonnets and numerous other poems, there's such a wealth of material it's no wonder we sometimes forget the finer details.
To Be Or Not To Be is a fresh, new look at Shakespeare's work showing how and why it remains such an integral part of popular culture and the English language.
This book covers everything: from the characters, essential plotlines and the famous lines from a host of Shakespeare's greatest works, to illuminating information on the playwright himself.
