I bought this as a gift in addition to the Oxford Complete Works of Shakespeare--my brother was thrilled to receive this companion guide. He maintains that the Oxford edition is the best for avid Shakespeare readers!

A fine single-volume look at Sahakespeare, his works, and his world.

as a high school english teacher, this thing is exactly what i need to give my students a little extra background on our reading, and it's perfect to give me context and a little more depth when i read shakespeare recreationally.

is it the most thourough companion out there? no. for the serious shakespeare student, you'll definitely want to find something with more depth eventually, but for someone who is just getting started with the bard, this is an excellent foundation on which to start building your knowledge. highly recommended.

This is an excellent source for any English major or literary scholar to have--a great supplement to any collection. But I bought this with the impression that it would contain more critical information on the works of Shakespeare so I was a bit disappointed when the critical summaries were just blurbs. If you are looking for a reference book that is more encyclopedic in nature, then this is an invaluable purchase.

I bought this based on the Amazon.com reviews. I haven't been as impressed as others. It's written for a high school or a very general audience. As a high school reference, it's probably very good. At anything beyond a basic level, however, the book falls short. For example, the entries for many of the minor historical characters are so brief as to merely mention the play in which they appear -- even though I know these characters have relevant familial ties, particularly to royal families. I'm not sorry I bought it; I was just expecting a bit more depth considering its cost. It's fun to browse through (lots of interesting facts to stumble upon, and many beautiful illustrations) but the bottom line is that this book rarely provides sufficient answers to my specific questions. It doesn't really qualify as a reference book beyond an elementary level. I doubt this is the best source of its kind. I plan to do what I should have done in the first place, go to a library and compare the available Shakespeare handbooks. I'm certainly not going throw this book away, but I'm going to have to look for one that better suits my needs.

A great addition to my studies

The latest edition and perfect NEW copy. Such a good price. Very very informative material produced by many contributors. A thorough work - an excellent primary resource on everything to do with Shakespeare.
A helpfull handbook to Shakespeare with articles on the individual plays and a dictionary of proper names (names in plays, names of locations, names of actors, etc.)
For half the price you can buy an equally good if not better guide, Shakespeare A to Z, by Chalres Boyce.
