Product description

Review

Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies seem to take place everywhere but Elizabethan London: Athens, Elsinore, Ephesus, Rome, Troy, Venice, Verona. This engaging book shows, contrary to received tradition, how deeply Shakespeare's experience of life in London inspired the themes and scenes of plays purportedly set elsewhere. "Lena Cowen Orlin, Professor of English, Georgetown University, USA"

It is an evocative journey that places Shakespeare's plays in a revealing urban context "The Guardian"

Crawforth, Dustagheer, and Young argue that the city in which Shakespeare lived and worked influenced the writing and performance of his plays. Each chapter of the book focuses on one play and one social or historical context for that play The authors provide useful supplementary materials: a chronology of Shakespeare s life, traced against important contemporary events in London, and a list of suggested reading, arranged by subject Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; general readers. --K. K. Smith, University of South Carolina, Aiken, "CHOICE""
