About This Book
For teachers, this handbook provides a means of introducing Shakespeare to students who are not yet ready to tackle a whole play and, at the same time, uses Shakespeare as a source for understanding the history of language. Each of the scenes in this collection (encompassing romance, battle, slapstick and horror) is a short, independent drama, and is followed by a set of questions about issues raised and the language used. The work offers suggestions for literary and theatrical practical work.
