To enable those who wish to read the extracts in their context, references are given to the most accessible
Introducing Shakespeare by G. B Harrison( Book )

The author deals first and foremost with the legend and then with the life. In the light of modern research he explores the Elizabethan playhouse with the help of a set of graphic reconstructions and examines the effect of its complicated structure on the play itself. But it is in the chapter on the Lord Chamberlain Players that Shakespeare and his associates are most clearly seen against a background of theatrical rivalry, literary piracy, the closing of the playhouses in time of plague, the famous performance of Richard II in support of Essex, and the fire which finally destroyed the Globe

"Warrior's Words examines leadership in the present century by scrutinizing the oral and written communications of 15 remarkable individuals at critical periods of their lives. Drawing on the words of Mohandas Gandhi, Clarence Darrow, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Joseph McCarthy, Adlai Stevenson, and Martin Luther King, among others, the author shows how language can dramatically transform listeners into agents of change. Moreover, the author analyzes how exemplary rhetoric can promote the development of motivation, the refinement of thought, and the binding together of people into positive forces for action. This study of the use and impact of words by significant social figures will be of interest to all students of rhetoric, politics, and history."--BOOK JACKET
