Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Shakespeare's Consuls, Cardinals, and Kings, Dick Riley offers an introduction to the ways that Shakespeare turned his sources into plays on both Roman and English history, analyzing what the playwright carefully adopted, what he chose to leave out, and what he reworked. By providing answers to these important questions as well as offering explanations of particular scenes and incidents that demonstrate why Shakespeare's dramas appealed to his audience, his book is an informative and useful guide for students new to Shakespeare studies."—Gerald M. Pinciss, Professor of English Emeritus at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York, author of Why Shakespeare?
