Book Description

A sensible and straightforward guide for students, teachers, and actors of Shakespeare. Based on the results of an extensive survey of 100 Shakespearean scholars and dramatists from the US, Canada, and the UK. Their recommendations on the pronunciation of over 300 controversial words, together with a variety of linguistic studies, are the authorities for the pronunciations given here. Pronunciation variants are listed for the UK, Canada, and the US.
