To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death this book offers fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world’s greatest playwright. It specifically highlights Shakespeare’s use of the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. Such references would have been commonly known in Shakespeare’s time but their deeper significance is lost to modern-day playgoers and readers. The most unique aspect of this book is the revelation that many of Shakespeare’s plays are entirely keyed to a specific zodiacal sign and associated (or ruling) planet. Shakespeare’s audience would have immediately grasped their significance in revealing character, foreshadowing the plot, and establishing key themes.
