"It is clear that "How to Speak Shakespeare" is not only for drama classes, but it can also be easily integrated into an English literature class. It provides a step-by-step guide to cracking the code of Shakespearean language and structure. . . . This book takes something that can be very daunting and makes it easier to understand." --"English Journal"

"This one won't sit long on the shelves after students and teachers discover it. Presented in the most simple--but not condescending--terms, Pritner and Colaianni teach readers how to understand and speak Shakespearean plays...lessons are easy to follow and written with a friendly hand. Thankfully, there are no synopses or critical interpretations, just excellent tutelage in Shakespeare's word usage, punctuation and poetry." --"Today's Librarian"

""How to Speak Shakespeare" is an invaluable, entertaining and informative book. This is the most accessible and unintimidating work on this subject I have read. It will be of equal interest to actors, scholars and lay people." --Vivian Matalon, Tony Award-winning director
