Alas poor Yorick, he looks not at all well.
I knew him, Horatio;
a fellow of infinite jest, though sadly finite breath.
Though thy gibes be still, yet still thou grins.
I seldom saw thy teeth look quite so clean
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this is the fourth of a new collection of the Bard's greatest plays, digested to a few thousand words with invaluable side notes from John Sutherland. Funny and incredibly clever, these parodies are a joy for those who know their Shakespeare, perfect for the theatre goer needing a quick recap, and a massive relief for those just desperate to pass their English exam. Witty, modern reworkings * Evening Standard * Hilarious - and all the better for those of us who know our Shakespeare back to front * Harriet Walter * Shrewd interpretations of the Bard; funny footnotes too * Hugh Bonneville * Perfect for anyone who struggles to understand Shakespeare ... hilarious and informative, they really bring Shakespeare to life. * Reality's a Bore *
