Developed by one of the world's leading theatre companies, this fantastic resource offers teachers a practical, drama-based approach to teaching and appreciating three of Shakespeare's most popular plays: Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. The toolkit brings the plays alive as performance pieces, with Primary pupils undertaking drama-based explorations of the text that take them through much of the play. Teachers' notes and accompanying photocopiable worksheets offer a lesson-by-lesson teaching route through each of the three plays in turn. The schemes of work offer teachers a route through each play that has been designed to be flexible and to bolt on to what they already teach. The schemes comprise a series of lessons that can either be followed in their entirety as a stand-alone scheme of work or which can be dipped into by teachers wanting to augment their existing schemes of work.

Macbeth and his wife show how bad the evil that can possess human souls is. But evil is not all powerful. On the one hand, Macbeth is the gloomiest of the great Shakespeare’s tragedies; on the other hand, it’s more encouraging than Hamlet, Othello or King Lear. In no other tragedy as in Macbeth the evil is confronted by so many people, and nowhere else they are so active.

"Angus McBean (1904-90) was one of the most extraordinary British photographers of the twentieth century. From the early 1930s to the late 1980s he inspired generations of artistic and cultural figures with his inventive portraiture." "His early portraits of stars, such as Peggy Ashcroft, Audrey Hepburn, Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud, contrast starkly with later commissions to photograph Cliff Richard, Shirley Bassey and the Beatles. In the midst of this work, McBean developed the surrealist techniques with which he is now best associated, for example depicting the actress Dorothy Dickson as a water lily and Vivien Leigh as a Greek goddess." "Throughout his long career McBean retained a cult status. For the first time since his death, this book brings together colour prints from the 1960s, including the shot of the Beatles leaning over the balcony at their recording studios, used on the album cover Please Please Me, and his celebrated series of self-portraits, which he sent out as Christmas cards. Terence Pepper's account of McBean's life and work includes extracts from the photographer's unpublished autobiography and is illustrated throughout with full-page reproductions."--BOOK JACKET.

This lively and innovative introduction to Shakespeare promotes active engagement with the plays, rather than recycling factual information. Covering a range of texts, it is divided into seven subject-based chapters: Character; Performance; Texts; Language; Structure; Sources and History, and it does not assume any prior knowledge. Instead, it develops ways of thinking and provides the reader with resources for independent research through the 'Where next?' sections at the end of each chapter. The book draws on scholarship without being overwhelmed by it, and unlike other introductory guides to Shakespeare it emphasizes that there is space for new and fresh thinking by students and readers, even on the most-studied and familiar plays.

The Genius of Shakespeare

This fascinating book by one of Britain's most acclaimed young Shakespeare scholars explores the extraordinary staying-power of Shakespeare's work. Bate opens by taking up questions of authorship, asking, for example, Who was Shakespeare, based on the little documentary evidence we have? Which works really are attributable to him? And how extensive was the influence of Christopher Marlowe? Bate goes on to trace Shakespeare's canonization and near- deification, examining not only the uniqueness of his status among English-speaking readers but also his effect on literate cultures across the globe. Ambitious, wide-ranging, and historically rich, this book shapes a provocative inquiry into the nature of genius as it ponders the legacy of a talent unequalled in English letters. A bold and meticulous work of scholarship, The Genius of Shakespeare is also lively and accessibly written and will appeal to any reader who has marveled at the Bard and the enduring power of his work.
