Is Shakespeare any Good? reveals why certain literary works and authors are treated as superior to others, and questions the literary establishment’s criteria for creating an imperium of “great” writers.

  • Enables readers to articulate and formulate their own arguments about the quality of literature – including works that convention forbids usto dislike
  • Dismantles the claims of academic criticism – particularly Theory – to tell us anything useful about why we like or appreciate literature
  • Challenges and shatters many longstanding beliefs about literature and its evaluation
  • Poses serious questions about the value of literature, and studying literature, and presents these in a lively and entertainingly provocative manner
