Review: Shakespeare After All

User Review  - Andrea Lakly - Goodreads

This is the very best book on Shakespeare's plays. I reread the essay on "Much Ado About Nothing" this weekend and was impressed all over again. If you are looking for something that's compelling but not deliberately obfuscating, go with Garber! Read full review
