Recently voted Man of the Millenium by BBC Radio 4 listeners, William Shakespeare is one of the most enduring and influential writers of all time. This delightful celebration of his work brings together over 100 best-loved speeches, scenes, and sonnets, all of which are guaranteed to appeal both to seasoned Shakespeare enthusiasts and to the uninitiated alike. From Romeo's wonderfully romantic accolade to Juliet's beauty - "But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?" to MacBeth's haunted musings after killing Duncan - "Is this a dagger, which I see before me?" here are many old favorites to be rediscovered. Complete with scene-setting passages for every extract and a foreword by Richard Briers, The Nation's Favourite Shakespeare is a unique treasure-trove of familiar and forgotten gems that you are sure to reach for again and again.
Publisher and industry reviews
UK Kirkus review
Following The Nation's Favourite Poems, and Favourite Love Poems, comes this anthology of Favourite Shakespeare: extracts, divided into two sections: Plays (sub-divided into Comedies, Tragedies and Histories) and Sonnets - a great introduction to the Bard's works at a manageable level for those taking their first, tentative, steps; a happy reminder for those more familiar with his work, of the 'best bits'. A pick-up-and-put-down book to keep at one's elbow when individual volumes or unwieldy tomes are out of reach. (Kirkus UK)
