“He was not for an age but for all time.” —Ben Jonson

This collection of Shakespeare passages, each with a brief introductory commentary, has been my reading companion every morning for this past year, and I will deeply miss it. I expect in a year or two I will return to it, but in the meantime, it shall also be a trusty reference.

This book is a treasure.
