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. Like its predecessor, this book will prove invaluable to everyone – whether they are ‘doing’ Shakespeare at school or want simply to brush up on a plot before going to the theatre. And another perfect Christmas present. In this volume you’ve got An account of each plot In delicate versification, With acts, scenes, and quotes, Plus poetical notes – And Eccles’inspired decoration.
