KIRKUS REVIEW

Good source book for the college student, with numerous illustrations, but nothing startlingly new in line of fact or interpretation. Shakespeare's life -- English drama and theatre at the time of his coming to London -- a chapter on each play, with sources, data on performances over the years, on actors participating. This only is an original contribution. It is a dependable primer, based on unimpeachable sources Diligent but dull.
