William Shakespeare, the famous writer and playwright, national English poet who inspired artists, writers and poets and influenced on the formation of modern English language, and his creations became part of the common unconsciousness. Numerous stage performances and films bring us over and over again to the characters created by a genius English playwright. The tragedies about immortal love of the two lovers from Verona, as well as other famous dramas are included into the book. Shakespeare’s sonnets are the best samples of “high poetry”. Literature historians have been arguing about them for several centuries, trying to solve the secret of mysterious “dark lady” and poet’s young friend to whom he devoted the works. A lot of science and fictional books are written and some films are shot about the possible story how he had created his sonnets. But ordinary readers just enjoy the beauty of Shakespeare’s language and passion of his inspiration that turned this collection of sonnets into the most genius poetry cycle in the history of world literature.

No other book on Hamlet has yet to consider the way in which the play in its four major aspects of Sorrow, Sexuality, Revenge, and Death, consistently reflects the otherworldly direction of Hamlet's thought and experience ... the elegant and subtle prose lends force and dignity to the argument ... a remarkable and provocative contribution to Shakespeare Studies. {Corona Sharp, English Studies in Canada}

Hamlet kills Polonius thinking he is Claudius. Yet he cannot kill Claudius. Why? Hamlet, angry, tells Ophelia: “Take thee to a nunnery!” [nunnery: Renaissance slang for brothel] “There [in Heaven] is no shuffling; there the action lies in his true nature, and we ourselves compelled, even to the teeth and forehead of our faults, to give in evidence.” —King Claudius “Why does Hamlet attend the German university at Wittenberg? Why study at a university at all? An incorrigible symbolist, Shakespeare must secretly import what he does not openly impart.” Contrast resolute avenger Laertes, who would “cut [Hamlet’s] throat i’ the church”! Shakespeare understood the Freudian slip centuries before Dr. Freud in Vienna. Twice he employs it to give us hints. Queen Gertrude to her son Hamlet: “What wilt thou do? Thou wilt not murder me? ... Alas, he’s mad!” “Prince Hamlet is a disillusioned idealist, a vital key to his generous, passionate, and tragically conscientious character.” Camelot—“Shakespeare specifically ties the assassination of Hamlet to the death of King Arthur and the collapse of the fellowship of the Round Table.”

The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare is the most comprehensive reference work available on Shakespeare's life, times, works, and his 400-year global legacy. In addition to the authoritative A-Z entries, it includes nearly 100 illustrations, a chronology, a guide to further reading, a thematic contents list, and special feature entries on each of Shakespeare's works. Tying in with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this much-loved Companion has been revised and updated, reflecting developments and discoveries made in recent years and to cover the performance, interpretation, and the influence of Shakespeare's works up to the present day. First published in 2001, the online edition was revised in 2011, with updates to over 200 entries plus 16 new entries. These online updates appear in print for the first time in this second edition, along with a further 35,000 new and revised words. These include more than 80 new entries, ranging from important performers, directors, and scholars (such as Lucy Bailey, Samuel West, and Alfredo Michel Modenessi), to topics as diverse as Shakespeare in the digital age and the ubiquity of plants in Shakespeare's works, to the interpretation of Shakespeare globally, from Finland to Iraq. To make information on Shakespeare's major works easier to find, the feature entries have been grouped and placed in a centre section (fully cross-referenced from the A-Z). The thematic listing of entries - described in the press as 'an invaluable panorama of the contents' - has been updated to include all of the new entries. This edition contains a preface written by much-lauded Shakespearian actor Simon Russell Beale. Full of both entertaining trivia and scholarly detail, this authoritative Companion will delight the browser and reward students, academics, as well as anyone wanting to know more about Shakespeare.

Martin Wine, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)
