"From the conjectured identity of the Dark Lady of the Sonnets to the staging of Othello in South Africa, The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare is the most comprehensive reference work available on Shakespeare's works, times, life, and afterlives. A team of internationally renowned scholars provides a stimulating and authoritative guide to Shakespeare's plays and poems, and their interpretation around the world over the last four centuries."--BOOK JACKET.
