Publisher's Summary

Professor Raphael Shargel channels his passion for teaching and expertise as a Shakespearean scholar into this illuminative study of the Immortal Bard's 10 great comedies. Shakespeare's genius is as readily apparent in these comedies as in his timeless tragedies. Often marked by internal and external conflicts, young lovers struggling for union, mistaken identities, and intertwining plots, Shakespeare's comedies to this day reveal the master's unparalleled insight into the human condition. With a fresh take on some of Shakespeare's most cherished and widely seen works, Professor Shargel provides an invaluable understanding of these exquisite comedies.

    "Great"

    I enjoyed the lecturers passion for his subject. Like many students when I was young, I suffered through one or another of Shakespeare's plays in English class, wondering what relevance could this long dead writer could ever be to me. Consequently, when I left school (very many years ago now) I never thought that I would ever read Shakespeare again. In the last few years I have increasingly had the feeling that I was missing out on something by not being more familiar with his works. Listening to this lecture series has opened my eyes to what I have deprived myself of for such a long time. Thank you.
