From star-cross’d lovers and tragic jealousy to unrequited passion and romantic courtship, images of amour are evoked in myriad ways in his plays and poems. In this endlessly browsable volume Michael Kerrigan plums the entirety of Shakespeare’s work to bring together the greatest examples of his meditations on love. By turns touching, inspiring, evocative, and heartrending, Shakespeare on Love is truly a book that readers will embrace.
