Distills the best, most widely read and produced of Shakespeare’s great plays
In one compact paperback, The Necessary Shakespeare showcases Shakespeare’s proficiency through different genres. It comprises 20 plays and some of the sonnets—and is arranged to emulate the First Folio of 1623, which categorizes his plays as comedies, histories, or tragedies. The book demonstrates Shakespeare’s development from the early The Taming of the Shrew and Richard the Third to the late The Tempest; it shows him as a remarkable poet as well as dramatist. Selections are informed by feedback from instructors across the country regarding which works are truly “necessary” in the undergraduate classroom, and in many cases are widely available on film or video. The Fifth Edition borrows features in pedagogy and approach from Bevington’s The Complete Works of Shakespeare, a more comprehensive collection of Shakespeare’s works.
