  • Revised chapter on Shakespeare's language makes this difficult subject even more accessible to today's students and includes a rich variety of examples drawn from Shakespeare's most widely taught plays.
  • Annotated appendix of the most useful Shakespeare Web sites helps students find additional documents and illustrations and aids their research.
  • The Bedford Shakespeare Series Web Site includes links to the Web sites listed in the appendix, sample documents from the text, an index keying documents to Shakespeare's plays and sample syllabi and writing assignments.
