Is Shakespeare any Good? reveals why certain literary works and authors are treated as superior to others, and questions the literary establishment s criteria for creating an imperium of great writers.

Enables readers to articulate and formulate their own arguments about the quality of literature including works that convention forbids us to dislikeDismantles the claims of academic criticism particularly Theory to tell us anything useful about why we like or appreciate literatureChallenges and shatters many longstanding beliefs about literature and its evaluationPoses serious questions about the value of literature, and studying literature, and presents these in a lively and entertainingly provocative manner
