"The literary trick of the year" - New York Post

"Such an original idea." - Sir Ian McKellan

"Fascinating and entertaining" - Booklist

"The power of Shakespeare's language flickers uneasily, surging and hissing and fizzing out only to revive and fade again as the words play against their new contexts." - John Wilson, Books and Culture
