Needs to be titled truthfully,
This review is from: Shakespeare, Sex, and Love (Kindle Edition)
Wells is a thorough and erudite reader of Shakespeare and this is a fascinating look at sex, desire and morality in his works. What it is NOT about is love. Because I am working specifically at this moment on the ways in which Shakespeare represents love throughout the works, I bought this. I expected a discussion of both sex and love, but really only found a discussion about sex. If that's what you're looking for this is a great book. But if you're looking at something centred on the many ways in which Shakespeare represents love, this is only marginally helpful. Good on desire, interesting observations on the hetero/homosexual questions, but not much here about love.
