Each Shakespearean quote is NOW fully ATTRIBUTED - under each idiomatic expression you will find the play from which the phrase derived (Coriolanus, Hamlet, Henry IV, Macbeth, and more!).
Shakespeare Feud allows instructors to allay students' fears about reading Shakespeare, and gets them ready to dive in with enthusiasm. See the preview and thumbnails for full color photos.
It helps students relax when they know how many commonly used idiomatic expressions were invented or popularized by Shakespeare!
