Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-An interesting study of Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, romances, and poems for readers with a good understanding of the Bard's work. Each play is given a brief, insightful analysis, which provides a fresh look at familiar characters and themes. For example, Charney explores the problematic definition of "tragedy" as it applies to Romeo and Juliet, and the effect of the play's climax on the teens. The poetry section does not laboriously debate the identities of the Dark Lady and the Friend in the sonnets, but emphasizes recurring images and dramatic devices. An excellent resource for serious students.

From Library Journal

This commentary on all of Shakespeare's plays and poems, arranged according to genre, is "designed as a series of minilectures" for the undergraduate student and general reader. Concerned mostly with Shakespeare as a poet and dramatist rather than as a Renaissance thinker, Charney (Rutgers Univ.) aims for accessibility, avoiding footnotes and bibliographies. He does not discuss all relevant topics but pursues a few of them thoroughly, which makes his book a useful supplement to the standard introductions available in most editions of the plays. One of the book's most pleasing aspects is the way Charney makes fresh and unexpected connections between the different plays, often by highlighting some less well known passages. This adds weight to his belief that Shakespeare's works "really do constitute a single comprehensive imaginative unit."-- Bryan Aubrey, Fairfield, Ia.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Besides Dr. Harold Bloom who I consider a mad literary genius there is Dr. Maurice Charney who is quite the expert on William Shakespeare and has written numerous books about him as well. This book does help break down the plays, characters and plots without overburdening the reader with too much information. If you need to know more about Shakespeare or the Bard as he is called, Dr. Charney is a great alternative to Bloom.

I think it was a great book. It really brings the real Shakespeare to life. It is one of the few books I can read again and again.
