I’m so pleased to have these testimonials from two author/scholars I admire!
This from Eric Booth, actor and author of “The Everyday Work of Art,” “The Music Teaching Artist’s Bible,” “Playing for Their Lives,” and “Tending the Perennials:
I guarantee that Lessons from Shakespeare’s Classroom will be the most surprising, most readable learning you will do all year, and that you will laugh out loud in every chapter. Zwounds!—hie thee to these pages most expeditiously.
And this from Louis Fantasia, Artistic Associate of Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles and author of “Instant Shakespeare”:
Robin Lithgow has done anyone interested in Shakespeare of education (and more particularly those of us interested in both Shakespeare and education) a great service with her book. By detailing the classical grounding of Shakespeare’s writing she shows us the great tradition of which we are a part; a tradition that expands in its inclusivity as the world changes and evolves. This tradition is the “fertile soil” that contributed to the brilliance of Shakespeare’s generation and lights a path for our own. It is truly an “education for the benefit of the commonwealth,” which we perhaps need now more than ever.
