"This brilliant and inspirational book offers new insight into thework and world of William Shakespeare and offers freshdemonstration of his relevance for our own lives and troubles. Atonce immensely erudite and extraordinarily accessible, Maguireshows how broken-hearts, dysfunctional families, domestic violence,and other personal and social problems, was all grist forShakespeare's theatrical imagination. Alongside unflinchingcriticism of a world-gone-wrong, Shakespeare also offered hisaudiences solace and hope. The top book on Shakespeare this year,Studying Shakespeare should be on everyone's bookshelf and on TheTimes Best Seller list."
