Bold and Brave Women from Shakespeare illustrated by Becca Stadtlander
Twelve of Shakespeare's most determined, courageous, clever and strong willed women are brought to life with rich and evocative illustrations in this beautiful gift book. Perfect for introducing children and adults alike to the stories of Titania, Rosalind, Cordelia, Beatrice and Lady Macbeth (amongst others), Bold and Brave Women from Shakespeare recounts the character's role and influence in their respective plays and gives each woman a voice. Cleopatra tells us: 'They said I was a temptress, a danger to the mighty republic of Rome. They were right', and Miranda reveals: 'But when I set eyes on Ferdinand, I saw a brave new world'. With an introduction by Dr Anjna Chouhan (Senior Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust) that celebrates the diversity of Shakespeare's female characters, this charming book will inspire and engage.
