In this comprehensive and compelling study, Stanley Wells explores the wide range of meanings that the plays can generate and analyzes their literary and dramatic craftsmanship in terms that are accessible to the nonspecialist, even to readers with no previous knowledge or experience of Shakespeare. In particular, he looks at Shakespeare's impact through the ages and especially on the varied realizations of his plays in modern theater.
