Shakespeare in a Nutshell

Author(s): James Muirden


James Muirden now turns his pen to another British treasure - Shakespeare - and has distilled each of the thirty-six plays into a poem of a few pages. Plots and characters are crystallised to wonderful effect so that the outlines of even the least known historical plays emerge with clarity. How many and which plays is Falstaff in? A useful index of dramatis personae will lead you to the answer. And once again the book is illustrated with David Eccles's inimitable witty drawings.
