This book introduces nine of Shakespeare's major plays: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Richard II, Macbeth, Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, King Lear and The Tempest. The chapters on the plays are supplemented by two short intervals, one describing the original theatrical contexts of the plays, and the other discussing the different textual versions of the plays available to us. Shakespeare: Texts and Contexts combines the critical practices of close reading and historical contextualization with a lively question-and-answer teaching style." ;
