Reviews

"In this brilliant, beautifully organized, exceedingly readable study of Shakespeare's tyrants and their tyrannies-their dreadful narcissistic follies, their usurpations and their craziness and their cruelties, their arrogant incompetence, their paranoid viciousness, their falsehoods and their flattery hunger-Stephen Greenblatt manages to elucidate obliquely our own desperate (in Shakespeare's words) "general woe"." -- PHILIP ROTH
"Brilliant, timely" -- MARGARET ATWOOD, on Twitter
"A scintillating book, uncannily illuminating about current politics, as perceptive about the victims of tyranny as it is about the tyrants themselves." -- Nicholas Hytner, former Artistic Director of the Royal National Theatre
"Brisk and highly readable" -- Jonathan Bate * New Statesman *
"Brilliant" -- Bryan Appleyard * Sunday Times *
