"Whether for the student wishing for an overview of critical approaches or anxious to fill in the gaps in his Shakespearean culture, for those wishing to catch up on the diversity of literary theories, or for the inquisitive browser, this set of volumes assuredly charts the map of current criticism." Cahiers Elisabethains "Those who are intimidated by the publishers' grandiose claim that the set would constitute 'a provocative roadmap to Shakespeare studies at the dawning of the twenty-first century' will breathe a sigh of relief to discover that the essays are not only readable, they are informative and stimulating. Essential." Choice
