I used this book as source for my World History culminating assignment that was a historical investigation on Shakespeare and how his characters and plays reflected Renaissance values. The index at the end of the book made it exceedingly easy to use and there are extra notes in the back of the book with the index as well. The language that the author uses is simple enough for just about anyone to understand and Bamber has breadth and depth covering different plays by Shakespeare.
