This is an auction for THE DRAMA OF LOVE, LIFE & DEATH IN SHAKESPEARE by Anthony Holden. reviews:

“Shakespeare is as much a figure of the 20th and 21st centuries as he is of the 16th and 17th, and "Shakespeare in Love" stands as evidence of our fascination. This book addresses two significant factors behind this continuing relevance. Firstly, there is the play's investigation of the most fundamental and timeless aspects of human nature. Play after play confronts what is immutable in man: our capacity for good and evil, our subservience to emotion. Each chapter examines themes recurrent in Shakespeare's dramas: love and hate; jealousy and revenge; and death and retribution among others. Secondly, there are the interpretation of the plays, many of which are films now lauded in their own right. Illustrated with stills from the most famous adaptations: from the Olivier-starring "Hamlet" to 1996's "William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet" and Leonardo Di Caprio.”

“The works of William Shakespeare are timeless, having as much relevance today as they did in the 16th and 17th centuries. Drawing on Shakespeare's own life, and illustrated with stills from classic movies, this important new book explores the passions and pleasures of human life, so vividly and memorably dramatized in his classic plays. Each chapter examines a major theme of Shakespeare's work, such as love and hate, jealousy and revenge, and death and retribution.”
