Brilliant and academic piece of writing with a reading which is as enchanting ax the work itself. Music to the ears/ it just makes it so much nicer / awesome!


(4 stars)

Well read, good info. Somewhat dated and filled with assumptions. Also, the focus on Shakespeare is so overwhelming that the topic of demonology is dropped for long periods.

A must-listen for Shakespeare enthusiasts
