With this by their side, even reluctant students will become engaged Shakespearians! No Fear Shakespeare: A Companion is an introduction to the life and works of William Shakespeare, targeted toward high school students. It showcases selected passages from the No Fear Shakespeare translations in an engaging way, with frequent headers and sidebars that break up the page and offer multiple points of entry into the text.
The contents include a brief biography of Shakespeare; a portrait of 16th century England, the Renaissance, and culture and education during Shakespeare's time; an overview of Shakespearian-era theatre; a look at the Bard's sources; and a discussion of whether Shakespeare is really the author of the plays attributed to him.
It's the perfect companion for students...or any reader interested in learning more about Shakespeare.
