In "All of Shakespeare," Maurice Charney, former president of the Shakespeare Association of America, provides a play by play, poem by poem guide to all of Shakespeare's works. In succinct and lucid chapters, Charney brings to life every play, from "The Comedy of Errors" to "The Tempest," in addition to the long poems and the "Sonnets."

The book is divided into sections according to genre: comedies, histories, tragedies, romances, and poems. Charney also considers works that may be only partly by Shakespeare: "The Two Noble Kinsmen," "Pericles," and "A Lover's Complaint."

Charney's account is accessibly written and infused with the belief that Shakespeare's works are intelligible and relevant to modern readers and audiences. The result is a volume that will be cherished and celebrated by readers who are just beginning to read Shakespeare and see his plays as well as those who are reacquainting themselves with his many delights.
