Shakespeare: A Graphic Guide
Nick Groom & Piero
Much more than a biography or a guide to his plays and sonnets, this little book is a tour through the world of the Bard and concludes that even after centuries, Shakespeare remains the battlefield on which our very comprehension of humanity is being fought out.
Learn how Shakespeare became so famous and influential, and why he is still widely considered the greatest writer ever. Investigate how the Bard has been adored at different times and in different places, used and abused to cultural and political ends, and the roots of intense controversies which have surrounded his work.
