    One thought on “The Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare Studies”

    1. This volume was somewhat helpful in understanding Shakespeare. Some of the more helpful articles in this collection were "The Life of Shakespeare," "Playhouses and Players in the Time of Shakespeare," and "The Transmission of Shakespeare's Text." I enjoyed these articles and a few others. Overall, I was happy to have read the book.

    2. One of a series of nine Cambridge Companions to Shakespeare, this one won't be very involving for people who aren't heavy fans, as it's about academic approaches to the series, and about various ways in which his era and contemporaries affect themes and character creation. But there are some very good essays if you're studying a particular topic. Not too shabby, Cambridge!

    3. If you haven't read Shakespeare extensively, this is not for you. For interested parties, a good book, well researched, good prose style.
