Review Everyday Shakespeare: Lines for life (a review)

This review fits in well with Asya Akopova’s excellent article on tailoring the English Language for history majors in university as it is about the famous Elizabethan playwright and poet, William Shakespeare. Compiled by actor, director and Shakespeare expert Ben Crystal and the world-renowned expert on applied linguistics and the English language, David Crystal, incidentally, Ben’s father, Everyday Shakespeare: Lines for Life offers a quotation from Shakespeare’s plays and poems for every day of the year, giving a simple but addictive insight into how Shakespeare used the language of his time to create his masterpieces. It is an excellent resource for teachers and researchers in English literature and for teachers running courses in history or the English language at upper intermediate and advanced levels.
