Product Description:

Shakespeare for the Christian! Six famous Shakespearian plays are interpreted and analyzed from a Christian perspective by author Peter Leithart. Any study of Henry V, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, or Much Ado About Nothing will be enhanced by his insights. The studies are very thorough, putting the action of the play into historical context and helping the reader understand the culture, characters, motives, and themes. After a very interesting overview, each play is broken into lessons for discussion. The text examines each segment of the play in greater detail, referencing specific lines and actions, again interpreting and analyzing these for us against a Christian and historical backdrop. After each lesson are review and thought questions for the student. The review questions review material as presented in the textual discussion. Thought questions have the student interpret other elements of the play (it would be nice if Mr. Leithart included a key for these). For those wanting their student(s) to prepare a written project as a summary activity, Suggested Paper Topics are also provided for each play.
