Abstract

Shakespeare created over 900 speaking characters for the actors in his 37 plays, and that included the women’s parts played by boys and young men. It is widely recognised that the great range of his poetry and prose spoken on the stage, and preserved in his published plays, is exceptional, felicitous and individual . This book is not in any way biographical, nor is it concerned with any historical questions about the authorship of his plays. It is intended not only for the reader who may not be familiar with Shakespeare’s plays, but also for those who are interested in the implications of the enormous amount and variety of Shakespeare’s texts spoken by his actors and accessible to readers. The book discusses the characters created by Shakespeare who range from the very rich and powerful and through the whole of the middle and poorest members of society. This book is concerned with how these characters react to authority and the law, how they express forgiveness, compassion, cruelty, kindness, greed, ambition, weakness and strength, as well as integrity and moral purpose.
