It recounts the lives and loves of a Shakespearean Theater Company in Canada (naturally), and it’s at its best when it manages to incorporate Shakespeare’s plays i...
Arbie's Unoriginally Titled Book Blog
OK - I haven't really read this cover to cover, but I used it recently whilst reading The Rape of Lucrece and thought it was fantastic. Besides entries on individual works and characters there are articles about Shakespeare's contemporaries, literary, theatrical and political, among others. Also ent...

. I've been watching the old BBC An Age of Kings. For those who don't know, this is an old BBC series of Shakespeare's history cycle from Richard II though to Richard III.
