Where do we start when studying Shakespeare? With the man himself? Or with historical context? With language? Or plot? Starting Shakespeare is a lively, approachable guide to studying Shakespeare, that enables students to make a 'start' on Shakespeare's plays; to read the plays for themselves and to develop ideas for discussion. It provides a clear, informative introduction to the key elements of Shakespeare studies, including historical context, theatrical awareness, characters and plots, settings, genres, language and editions. Each chapter is a potential 'starting point' in its own right, with extensive cross-references providing links between sections. Each chapter uses a range of plays to illustrate the points made, drawn from a wide range of genres and both early and late texts but with a focus on the plays most often studied. Chapters end with a brief summary and suggestions for wider reading, including guidance on key critical works and approaches. Starting Shakespeare is an ideal introduction to studying Shakespeare and his works. It provides a clear starting point and a thought-provoking guide to further study.
