In a lively introduction to Shakespeare's life, career and the theater of his day, Michael Alexander returns to the basics of how to read Shakespeare's works as literary texts. Surveying the most popular and widely-studied plays and sonnets, he elaborates upon the historical, cultural and literary contexts that surrounded their creation.

Recensione:

'There are other good short introductions to Shakespeare, but few are as 'helpful' (Alexander's aim) and none packs so much - and with such elegance - into the space. Infinite riches in a little room.' - Times Literary Supplement
 
'In barely 160 pages, he provides wonderfully succinct introductions not only to more than half of Shakespeare's plays, but also to the Sonnets, the biography, and the theatre of his day … Alexander is interested in the heart of the matter, not its fringes, and his book explores it with admirable insight and concision.' - Lukas Erne, Around the Globe
 
'Reading Shakespeare almost always finds something new to say about this multi-faceted genius...Michael Alexander provokes thought throughout this fascinating little book.' - Alexander Lucie-Smith, The Tablet
 
'Alexander makes his reader – who is as likely to be a student as not – think about the relation of character and role, about what is "problematic" in a problem play or "historical" in a history, and about the different cadences of comedy and tragedy even within a single drama. Reading Shakespeare may be aimed at a campus market, but is likely to be appreciated by a passionate reader of the plays for whom familiarity has led to inattention but who is, as this wise commentator makes clear, a quite sufficient audience.' - Brian Morton, Glasgow Herald
 
'A miracle of compression and readability, covering so much of Shakespeare so illuminatingly ... No other author of a comparable book brings quite the Alexander mix of gifts to the task of seeing Shakespeare whole.' - Ewan Fernie, Professor and Chair of Shakespeare Studies, The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham, UK

'A concise, informed, and lively introduction to Shakespeare's life, times, theater, and plays.' – Richard McCoy, Professor of English at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA
