For the Love of Shakespeare

    By

    Did you know... Shakespeare is the most filmed author of all time: he's been credited on more than 1,000 movies and TV shows. `Obscene', `gloomy', `fashionable' and `generous' are among the countless new words that Shakespeare introduced. Actually, `countless' is one of his too. It's also because of the Bard that we say `catch a cold', `naked truth' and `green-eyed monster'. Almost all the moons of Uranus are named after characters from Shakespeare, including Titania, Oberon and Puck? For further fascinating insights, dive into this masterful miscellany and become a Shakespeare buff. There's never been a better time to take a fresh look at William Shakespeare's eternal works. A treasure trove of wit, imagination and emotion, his plays and poems continue to surprise, inspire, console and delight us. Whether you're a lifelong lover of the Bard or a curious newcomer to his world, this companion will lift the curtain on the unforgettable characters and stories of Britain's greatest dramatist.
