Reviews

"Admired since the 1950s for the primal force of his own verse, former British poet laureate Hughes (1930-1998) also won praise in his home country for numerous projects of editing, literary criticism and translation, among them this enlightening selection (first published in 1971) of favorite passages from the Bard's sonnets, narrative poems, and (especially) his plays. Familiar and unfamiliar sonnets ("Not marble, nor the gilded monuments/ Of princes shall outlive this powerful rhyme") mingle with great speeches and lengthy passages, famous and not-so-famous, taken from most of the plays: "Once more into the breach, dear friends" (Henry V), "the great image of authority: a dog's obey'd in office" (King Lear) and over a hundred more." - Publishers Weekly
