"This is a sane, hugely compassionate book that captures much of what is great about Shakespeare's dramatic vision of human vicissitudes."-Washington Times. "The book is a pleasure-jargon-free and clearly organized. It is also wise. Like Coleridge, sometimes Mack opens up sudden illuminations we wonder we never saw before."-Choice.
