Краткое описание

Shakespeare: Staging the World.

Almost as good as time-traveling back to Shakespeare's London to see one of his plays at the Globe Theatre, this heavily illustrated book gives us the streets, shops, and churches that the poet would likely have visited; the bookstalls where he found source material; and the objects that appeared on his stages or sparked his imagination. Shakespearean scholar Jonathan Bate and British Museum curator Dora Thornton illustrate and describe the era through an extraordinary collection of objects, art, and printed works that evoke London in 1612, bringing to life not only Shakespeare himself, but also the characters, places, and events—real and imagined—featured in his plays. Simon Forman's diary of 1611 provides a vivid account of attending a contemporary performance of A Winter's Tale; a dagger fished from the Thames gives new resonance to the gang violence of Romeo and Juliet; Henry V's saddle, helm, and shield—medieval relics that would have been a familiar sight in Westminster Abbey to Shakespeare's fellow Londoners—recall the history plays and their examination of the nature and conduct of war; and Guy Fawkes's lantern illustrates the Catholic counterculture revealed through the failed Gunpowder Plot, which later provided the inspiration for Macbeth."This richly illuminated—and illuminating—book is a brilliant introduction to the world Shakespeare inhabited, refashioned in his capacious imagination, and bequeathed to us."—Stephen Greenblatt
