    $1.49

    "...The Taming of the Shrew has been persistently popular since Shakespeare's day, for it is a boisterous and amusing farce on a theme that has entertained both men and women since the beginning of time: the conflict between the sexes and the comic situations that this eternal warfare begets." — From "War of the Sexes" (page viii)

  • Shakespeare: Four Tragedies (Paperback)

    Shakespeare: Four Tragedies (Paperback)

    $3.99

    "The four tragedies in this volume are linked in a number of thematic ways. They all confront the nature of evil, as Shakespeare's classical tragedies generally do not. Human failure is often measured in terms of good and evil." — David Bevington, Editor

  • The New Penguin Shakespeare: Henry V (Paperback)

    The New Penguin Shakespeare: Henry V (Paperback)

    $2.46

    "The popularity of the subject hardly needs explaining. Not only did Henry's reign stand out to later generations by contrast with the preceding troubles of Richard II and Henry IV, and the succeeding disasters of Henry VI, but Henry's almost miraculous conversion from wild youth to ideal king was an article of faith going back to chronicles contemporary with Henry himself. The king reborn from evil to good, and leading a heroic campaign to a famous victory, was irresistibly attractive." — A. R. Humphreys, Editor, in the Introduction

    "Although Shakespeare lived and wrote hundreds of years ago, his name rolls off my tongue as if he were my brother. As a producer and director, I feel that there is a professional relationship between us that spans the centuries. As a human being, I feel that Shakespeare has enriched my understanding of life immeasurably. I hope you'll let him do the same for you." — Joseph Papp in the Foreword

Poland, Ph.D., Authors of 1904 edition of Famous Men of the Middle Ages

    "The hardest part of writing a word history is deciding what to leave out. In The Story of the Word, I have tried to keep history simple and straightforward by highlighting the major events, personalities, and national stories of the world's cultures, in (more or less) chronological order." — Susan Wise Bauer, Author
