Goodreads reviews help readers decide to read books . Here it reviews Shakespeare's Sexual Comedy: A Mirror For Lovers:
M.F.: Written in the wake of the sexual revolution of the 60s, British ex-pat Richmond, teaching apparently at Berkeley across from San Francisco, gives a fantastic analysis of Shakespeare in terms of sex and gender. This is a wonderfully written manual for healthy romantic relationships - how to avoid Romeo and Juliet fatality, the pleasure of being with strong women (Beatrice, Rosalind), and the pitfalls of being an idiot (Romeo again). I really found this to be a perfect balance between literary criticism and a pleasurable interpretation of the Bard's work. Very, very highly recommended if you can find a copy!
