Signed Copy: Mad about Shakespeare: From Classroom to Theatre to Emergency Room by Jonathan Bate
Signed by the author at The Shakespeare Bookshop
Shakespeare's world is never too far different from our own, permeated with the same tragedies, the same existential questions and domestic worries. In this personal story about loss and depression, Jonathan Bate investigates moments of his own life- losses and challenges- and asks whether Shakespeare can offer human insight, comfort and wisdom for any moment or crisis. We also meet actors, such as Judi Dench, and writers, such as John Keats and Sylvia Plath, who all turned to Shakespeare in their own dark times.
