NoSweatShakespeare 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 of English 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 life for 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 NoSweatShakespeare 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. See samples of Shakespeare’s plays as modern English ebooks.

How To Cite NoSweatShakespeare
There are a number of systems you can use when citing a website (MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style etc.). If you’re not sure which system you need to use for your assignment go for The Chicago Manual of Style – a safe bet.
For citing NoSweatShakespeare.com in The Chicago Manual of Style you need to have one source entry as a footnote, and the same entry repeated in your bibliography. The format of both entries should be:
Last Name, First Name. “Title of Web Page.” Website name in italics. Publication date and/or access date if available. URL.
- Last Name/First Name is always “King, Warren”
- Publication date is always 2004, unless it’s a blog article, in which case use the date from near the top of the page.
So an example citation for this page would be:
King, Warrern “How To Cite NoSweatShakespeare.com”, NoSweatShakespeare.com. 2004, accessed 1/1/20013. https://www.nosweatshakespeare.com/how-to-cite-nosweatshakespeare.
