About the Author:

Kathy Elgin is a Capstone Press author.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7–Elgin examines the Renaissance through Shakespeare's writings. Each volume focuses on one particular aspect of life and uses quotes from the plays to help explain the topic. The coverage is definitely limited by the format. The explanations of the topic within the broader topic (e.g., Non-Professional Healers or Surviving Birth and Childhood in Health are of necessity brief, but clear. The addition of Shakespearean text for each such topic, however, muddies the water because vocabulary, as well as content, becomes an issue. Difficult words are defined within the text; another 40 or 50 are included in the glossaries. That's a lot of unfamiliar terms in a 29-page text. Illustrations include paintings, etchings, and photographs; no sources for these materials are given. Text appears over what seems to be a facsimile of the type of paper Shakespeare used. Quotes from different plays (repeating part of a quote already on the page) wind around the borders of most pages; to read them, one must rotate the book. The Facthound Web sites are on Shakespeare, the Globe Theatre, and Tudor England; all use fairly sophisticated vocabulary. While students need an understanding of Shakespeare's life and times to better comprehend his plays, Elgin's approach is problematic for this age group. The dry presentation combined with the nuances of the Bard will deter readers.–Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY
