No Sweat Shakespeare is a labor of love from London-based father and son Shakespeare enthusiasts John and Warren King.
Warren King has taught English literature for the past 35 years in a number ofEnglish schools. During the 1980s he was seconded to the national Shakespeare and Schools Project, where he worked to develop methods of teaching Shakespeare in the classroom that bring plays to lifefor students of all ages.
Warren subsequently worked as a Shakespeare consultant at the London Education Authority, where his focus was working with teachers to make Shakespeare lively, comprehensible and enjoyable for their students. He has created and delivered Shakespeare workshops for both teachers and students, and still regularly visits schools in the UK and Europe to address groups of teachers.
The No Sweat Shakespeare ebooks stem from a realisation that although so much good work has been done on textual aspectsm and the broad grasp of plot, few resources are available to give students a complete grasp of the complexity of a whole Shakespeare text in one short reading.
