Oxford Shakespeare Topics provide students and teachers with short books on important aspects of Shakespeare criticism and scholarship. Each book is written by an authority in its field, and combines accessible style with original discussion of its subject.
"... the series's aim... is to inform and provoke, to provide close reading and critical analysis ... As such, it informs serious first-time readers of Shakespeare's plays while offering numerous avenues of further pursuit" - Catherine S. Cox, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, South Atlantic Review
"a new series of handsomely produced volumes" - Jonathan Bate, Times Literary Supplement
