Review:

"Indispensable."--The Bookseller

"Theatre-goers are in safe hands...They will find this guide more useful than most programme notes, while students will find it more provocative than the average crammer...a reliable companion: accurate, vivid, a foil for your thoughts-and even a help with the cryptic crossword."--Independent

"Very few of us have a working knowledge of all 38 of Shakespeare's plays. A Pocket Guide to Shakespeare's Plays provides the essential background for all who study, teach, direct, or watch Shakespeare."--Timothy West
