The Comedy, History and Tragedy of William Shakespeare (Paperback)

Anna Claybourne

-   7 years +

Published in time for the 400th annivesary of his death in 2016, this is a first introduction to William Shakespeare - his life, times and plays - from his school life in Stratford-upon-Avon to living in Elizabethan London and co-owning the Globe theatre. The light-hearted but authoritative text combines with Adria's Meserve's magical illustrations to capture the world of the Tudor theatre. The book also contains clever and extremely useful short summaries of some of Shakespeare's best-loved plays - including comedies such as Midsummer's Night Dream and Twelfth Night, histories such as Henry V and Richard III and tragedies such as Macbeth and Hamlet. This is a beautiful, entertaining and accessible picture book about the world's most famous writer. Shortlisted for the English 4-11 Awards and highly commended, with a special mention, in the SLA Information Book Award.
