Acknowledgements

This book is dedicated to my inspirational maternal grandparents, who were much in my thoughts as I was finishing it. Then my father died, as I was revising it—I hope in another book to make an appropriate acknowledgement of my enormous debt to him.

I have been remarkably lucky in my teachers of Shakespeare at St Edward's School, Oxford, and then at Cambridge. The path to this book started, I think, with doing Macbeth for Olevel with John Gidney, and then The Winter's Tale for A level with John Trotman. I was supervised brilliantly as an undergraduate by John Kerrigan and Anne Barton. Any or all of these may feel like Dr Frankenstein after reading this book—they're not to blame, but they have my deep gratitude. After that, I became the teacher, and over the last decade or so aspects of this book have been tested and refined by a succession of excellent students at the University of Cambridge, at the University of Cambridge Shakespeare Summer School, and on the University of New Hampshire Summer Program.

One of the few things I have in common with Shakespeare is that I have been edited by Stanley Wells and Peter Holland for Oxford University Press. I'm sure Shakespeare would agree that their humane rigour is a wonderfully improving thing. But of course, they too cannot be blamed for remaining wrongdoings in this book. At OUP Tom Perridge has been consummately patient and assiduous. I'm also grateful for many insights gleaned from conversations with Gavin Alexander, Rebecca Beale, Colin Burrow, Patrick Cheney, David Colclough, Paul Hartle, Gordon McMullan, Subha Mukherji, Jason Scott-Warren, and Tiffany Stern.

Finally, my family have been wonderful. My mother and sister and grandma in particular have been brave and kind as ever. Clare, Thomas, and Sophie have made everything a joy.
