Shakespeare Behind Bars

One Teacher's Story of the Power of Drama in a Women's Prison
Jean Trounstine
An inspirational story for all teachers

Description

In this deeply stirring account, Trounstine, who spent 10 years teaching at Framingham (MA) Women's Prison, focuses on six inmates who, each in her own way, discover in the power of Shakespeare a way to transcend the painful constraints of incarceration. Shakespeare Behind Bars is a powerful story about the redemptive power of art and education.

Originally published in cloth by St. Martin's Press in 2001, the paperback includes a new foreword that will inspire all teachers who work with students others have deemed unteachable. A new afterword updates readers on the lives of the six inmates—and the author herself—since 2001.
