The book contains a full commentary of all the plays by bestselling and reknowned writer Peter Ackroyd as well as full descriptions of the cast and the drama; not forgetting the best speeches, and the wit and wisdom from across the works.

There is also an opportunity to explore the poems and a complete set of sonnets, as well as an investigation of who the dark lady might have been.
