A big thank-you to the following resources. Without such resources, these videos would not have been the same: The New Cambridge Shakespeare, No Fear Shakespeare, the Oxford Shakespeare, and the artists whose work appears in my slides. Please get in touch if you’d like to know the source of any illustration, clip-art, photograph, or animation.


Save for later
