The subject of William Shakespeare, considered by many to be the greatest writer in the English language, is often approached with trepidation by students encountering one of his plays for the first time. This text explains Shakespeare's works by putting them into the context of the Elizabethan times in which he lived. Characters, themes, and literary devices are defined and examined as students are exposed to close readings of the histories, tragedies, comedies, and verse. The text includes examples from every type of work as well as ample critical analysis that serves to illuminate the life and work of this peerless dramatist and poet.
