This education pack has been written as a resource for Shakespeare’s King John. The contents are intended to be relevant for both those who are familiar with the play, those who know something of Shakespeare and those who have little or no knowledge of the playwright.

Because of this, we recommend that this pack is used selectively. “King John” is often overlooked when one reads Shakespeare, and it should not be, as it has some great things to add to the canon. By the way, I give "King John" a star rating compared to other Shakespeare, not to literature as a whole.
