Germaine Greer examines Shakespeare's plays in detail, revealing how he dramatized moral and intellectual issues in such a way that his audience became dazzlingly aware of an imaginative dimension to daily life. Greer argues that as long as Shakespeare remains central to English cultural life, the country will retain the values that make it unique in the world, namely tolerance, pluralism, and a profound commitment to democracy.
