‘The author is evidently an expert on the play, and shows his/her love for the text clearly. I like the fact that the author is writing for students, giving them very important advice about working from the text outwards and giving very clear advice about how to tackle questions in the exam. The tips are useful for all students and all exam boards. The generic questions at the end would provide opportunities to discuss key ideas and to practise exam writing skills – they’re very useful.’ – S Owen, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
