Description: In a Shakespeare book like no other, Ron Rosenbaum exposes fierce conflicts in which brilliant scholars and directors clash over genuinely urgent Shakespeare controversies: What makes his language so thrillingly transcendent? What kind of writer was he-the one-draft wonder of Shakespeare in Love or a serious reviser of his work who left behind profound questions over what is the most “Shakespearean” way to read and play Shakespeare? We emerge with powerful new ways of experiencing the greatest works of the human imagination.
