Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802777333, Paperback)

In Shakespeare Well-Versed James Muirden captures the essence of each of the bard's plays in quick-witted, rhyming verse. These clever synopses--with varied rhyme schemes--bring to life the high points and high jinks of all of Shakespeare's plays. Here the best-loved scenes and characters--Romeo and Juliet's impassioned balcony rendezvous, Henry V's speech before the Battle of Agincourt, Hamlet's melancholy soliloquy, the three witches meddling in Macbeth--are given fresh perspective by Muirden's charming, insightful interpretations.

Whether you are a lifelong devotee of Shakespeare or one who hasn't read his work since high school, you will be delighted by Muirden's verse and by David Eccles's wickedly clever illustrations that are featured throughout the book. Shakespeare Well-Versed is a smart and entertaining companion to Shakespeare's plays.
