Shelves: plays
The selected plays form an excellent survey of adaptations from different periods. The introductions are scholarly and relevant. Even when an individual play may not be in a style that you enjoy, they hold together as a series and provide a series of lenses through which to view the Bard's work.

-the tamer tamed is a travesty against nature. It is discount-dvd theatre. Gary Busey is Petruchio.
-keat's king stephen is an interesting tease.
-The Public
