Shakespearean Whodunnits Summary

Shakespearean Whodunnits by Michael Ashley

Crimes-a-plenty tumble out of Shakespeare's plays. Suppose, for instance, that Friar Lawrence isn't available to explain the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, and that Capulet or Montague engages someone to investigate their deaths? How about King Lear: he is convinced that Cordelia is alive at the end of the play. Is the corpse Cordelia or someone else? What has happened? How did Falstaff really die in "Henry V" and who was behind his humiliation in "The Merry Wives of Windsor"? Did Cleopatra really commit suicide, or was it a set-up? Who, exactly, is the sinister visitor conjured up by Caliban in "The Tempest"? This anthology consists of a collection of stories, each one investigating a mystery in a Shakespeare play and involving its principal characters.
