What makes Shakespeare's tragedies so enduring? Focusing on Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and King Lear, this accessible introduction examines their use of language to prompt the audience's imagination, and sets them in the wider context of the playwright's work. By understanding the mechanics of the plays, it explains why they continue to be performed, watched and studied by millions four centuries after they were written.
