'William Shakespeare wrote plays. He didn't write them just for people to read in school or for teachers to use for impossible exam questions Let's get this straight:
Shakespeare wrote plays so people would be entertained. He wanted people to have FUN!
And when Elizabeth I and King James I (King James VI of Scotland) were ruling Britain, people did have fun watching performances of Shakespeare`s plays. The plays were, and still are, every bit as entertaining as today`s TV soap operas.
They have death and destruction, jokes and jests, weird witchcraft, rogues and royals, hatred and heartache, blood and butchery...........
So here they are. The ten plays selected here are the ones that have been performed most over the past one hundred and fifty years:-'
192 pages, split into chapters:
STORY 10 - A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
STORY 9 - KING LEAR
STORY 8 - TWELFTH NIGHT
STORY 7 - THE TEMPEST
STORY 6 - THE MERCHANT OF VENICE
STORY 5 - ROMEO AND JULIET
STORY 4 - JULIUS CAESAR
STORY 3 - THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
