Distills the best, most widely read and produced of Shakespeare’s great plays

In one compact paperback, The Necessary Shakespeare showcases Shakespeare’s proficiency through different genres.It comprises 20 plays and some of the sonnets—and categorizes his plays as comedies, histories, or tragedies. The book demonstrates Shakespeare’s development from the early The Taming of the Shrew and Richard the Third to the late The Tempest; it shows him as a remarkable poet as well as dramatist. Selections are based in part on user feedback, and in many cases are widely available on film or video.
