In three dozen plays and 150 sonnets, William Shakespeare probed the human spirit with unparalleled insight. What Would Shakespeare Do? uncovers for the modern reader all the personal advice contained in the Bard's immortal words.Using the same blend of history, drama, and earthy humor that characterizes Shakespeare's work, this book explores ideas that still resonate today: sex and love, youth and aging, morals and the meaning of life. As in What Would Buddha Do?, each page features a question about a modern-day dilemma followed by a quote from Shakespeare and an illuminating commentary by the author.Whether read as a diversion for the Shakespeare buff, an imaginative self-help book, or a unique introduction to the Bard, What Would Shakespeare Do? proves true the words of Ben Jonson that Shakespeare "was not of an age but for all time".
