About the Book:

Rare book, very limited quantities available

This fascinating dictionary provides a truly accessible A-Z guide to Shakespeare's plays, poems and stagecraft, as well as the historical context in which he wrote.

Louise McConnell conceived the idea for Exit, Pursued by a Bear when helping a young friend through High School English. Having recognized the need for a lively, accurate and clear guide to Shakespeare and his world, she brought to the task a lifetime's enthusiasm for the theatre and play production, and experience as an editor. Entries help explain Shakespeare's texts and provide the historical context needed. The wealth of information includes practical details of productions and theatre companies, terms from Elizabethan history and society, plus those used in critical reviews. Exit, Pursued by a Bear will bring hours of informative pleasure to anyone interested in the Bard and his work.

Forward by Michael Boyd, Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). Supplements include a detailed filmography, which includes international adaptations of the plays, a list of useful websites and suggestions for further reading as well as a map of Elizabethan playhouses and a guide to kings and queens of the period.
