  • DESCRIPTION

    Shakespeare's reputation since his death has been so spectacular that we can be misled into thinking of him as a genius working in inspired solitude. But theatre is practical, collaborative and commercial, and plays emerge from the historical, cultural and social influences of their birth. Shakespeare on Stage provides invaluable information on the theatre of Shakespeare's lifetime, but it also explores a wider context.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • Each title includes a wide-ranging yet carefully levelled introductory discussion of a literary period, genre or theme, to provide students with an excellent introduction to an area of literature.

    • Helps students to address the new assessment objective 4 ('demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received') - worth up to 35% of the A level qualification under new guidelines.

    • Discussion questions and end-of-section tasks offer an invaluable resource for self study as well as helpful exam preparation.

    • A mini-anthology of texts and extracts saves teachers time searching for appropriate 'wider reading' texts.
