— Michael Colleary, writer, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Every writer aspires to create a character like Hamlet or a love story like Romeo and Juliet. But how did Shakespeare create characters of such compelling psychological depth? What makes his stories so romantic, funny, heartbreaking, and gripping? Why have his creations stood the test of time?

SHAKESPEARE FOR SCREENWRITERS is the first book to use Shakespeare’s works to examine the fundamentals of screenwriting, breaking down beloved characters, stories, and scenes to uncover timeless storytelling secrets.

“If you think Shakespeare has no relevance to contemporary filmmaking, you aren't looking very closely. Excellent!”
— Howard Suber, Professor, UCLA School of Film; author, The Power of Film

“Screenwriters seeking to expand their narrative skills can do no better than to consider the Master.”
— Richard Walter, Professor and Screenwriting Chairman, UCLA School of Film
