Brain Power’s Dr. Joel Benabu is a Shakespearian scholar who has devoted many years of his life to the study of Shakespeare’s stagecraft and specifically his strategies of an opening–and now he has published a book on the subject!

Shakespeare and the Strategies of an Opening is “a detailed introduction to its subject.” Joel “constructs a theoretical framework for Shakespeare’s opening strategies,” then “explores different strategies for constructing an opening in seven Shakespearean plays selected for analysis.”
