Welcome, Amardeep Dhillon.

The Shakespeare Bookshop was pleased to have had a work experience student from King Edward VI, Amardeep Dhillon, who volunteered two days of his time to see how the shop is run. Amar was an asset to the shop during his time with us, and was most helpful with running the book stall during the Brean Hammond event in the Shakespeare Centre. Below, Amar talks about his time in the shop.

Amar was kind enough to review Bravo, Mr William Shakespeare by Marcia Williams. His review follows.

‘Bravo Mr. William Shakespeare comprises 7 of Shakespeare’s best plays. Written in comic-book style with quotes from each play and illustrated intricately, it is perfect for those new to Shakespeare.

It is the book that first sparked my interest in Shakespeare. I first read the book at age 9, and nearly 7 years on I can still appreciate its sheer brilliance. I can still read with enjoyment tales of honour and happiness, power and pain, magic and mayhem, greed and gaiety and, above all, love and friendship. Written in simple English, it nevertheless conveys the power of each plot.

Twelfth Night, Anthony and Cleopatra, As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear and Richard III – this book offers a way through the maze of old English and hidden meanings to the basic, but no less beautiful, storylines at the heart of each of these plays.

I would definitely recommend it to those new to Shakespeare, and I think that any Shakespeare fans should give it a go too! I hope to see more like this in the future from Marcia Williams.’

We look forward to welcoming Amar back later this summer for some more work experience.
