In this light-hearted but immensely challenging look at The Bard's world through the keyboard of modern man, you find yourself, after watching too many Shakespeare plays (or perhaps reading them) wandering around a strange land. Here they use a richer language than usual, and some of the scenes remind you of certain Shakespeare plays. How you are going to return successfully to the present day is something that you will have to find out for yourself!
Why does the adventure take place on three different dates? What is the significance of the lady Portia's caskets? Why does Yorick sometimes say
"Golesida" and sometimes something else? Why do you suddenly find yourself wearing an ass's head? T hese are just some of the tantalising puzzles that you'll meet when you welcome AVON ... An exhaustive knowledge of the Shakespearean Canon is not necessary as, in most cases, just the problems rather than the solutions are taken from Shakespeare.
