The Loves of Shakespeare's Women

Front Cover
Nick Hern Books, 2001 - Drama - 112 pages

Here are the famous speeches from Juliet--Come, night! Come, Romeo!--and from Portia--The quality of mercy...--but also less familiar ones from Viola, Hermia, Isabella and Cressida. These younger characters make up the first half of the book, while the second half is devoted to maturer women like Lady Macbeth--How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me--Gertrude, Mistress Quickly, Cleopatra and Queen Katherine.
