Shakespeare was a great observer who was able to see deeply into the patterns of human character. He understood our deepest desires, motives, and concerns, presenting them to us as types so that we may better see ourselves. Dare anyone say that these insights are irrelevant to living in the modern world? Leithart’s perceptive walk through six popular plays intentionally interprets them in the light of Christianity, revealing the depth of ideas and insights available therein. The six plays discussed are Henry V, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, and Much Ado About Nothing. Leithart divides each play into four parts, suggesting lesson plans to complete each play in one month. By selecting quotes that reveal the major themes in each play, Leithart makes reading and understanding complex ideas simple, clear, and concise.
