Shakespeare Well Versed will enchant readers with clever, rhyming synopses of all of the bard's plays. James Muirden skillfully employs varied rhyme schemes to bring to life the high points and high jinks of these classic works. From the famous balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet, to Hamlet's melancholy soliloquy and the Battle of Agincourt in Henry V, each play is honored with its own witty verses. All the best-loved scenes and characters are present, and occasional barbs of modern humor are deftly woven in. Whether a serious student of Shakespeare, or one who hasn't read his plays since high school, readers will be charmed by Muirden's verse and by the wickedly clever illustrations of David Eccles that are featured throughout the book.
