Mastering ShakespeareShakespeare's Wordcraft

"A number of books have been written about Shakespeare’s rhetorical figures and the acting clues encoded within, but this text has three features that make it unique and immeasurably useful as a teaching tool. ... the unabashed passion with which this book is written is infectious and will hopefully inspire a new generation of actors and those who teach them."
