A beautifully written resource. I found it a pleasure to read, both for its clarity and for its close focus on the text. Each scene is presented in segments, dealing with all the key aspects of the scene, the characters, the language and the dramatic conventions. Characters, themes, motifs, form and structure are all addressed in productive ways. S Owen, English & Independent Reviewer
