Great book for anyone interested in Shakesoear
Excellent guide to acting Shakespeare and reading the text. Michael York's readings are wonderful. This book helps us to understand Shakespeare as a dramatist. I think that it is easy for scholars analyzing the text to forget that the playwright was making a living and was writing for an audience, producers, and censors (being politically correct) in much the same way as a modern screenwriter. This book is useful to not only actor's, but anyone who wants to read and enjoy Shakespeare's
