About this product
- DescriptionThis is a concise, accessible introduction to Shakespeare's life and work which focuses on what we kw, assessing the differing theories and avoiding speculation. William Shakespeare's work and life have proved endlessly fascinating to generations of readers. However, it can be difficult to find a way through the mass of differing interpretations of his work and speculation about his life. This book offers a reassessment of Shakespeare and his creative output from his earliest work through his 'mature' drama and the late plays, taking into account our current kwledge of Shakespeare's biography and consensus on key textual, critical and theatrical issues. William Baker offers a comprehensive but accessible introduction to Shakespeare's work and places it in the contexts of what is kwn of his life and activities. Avoiding speculation of a biographical, critical or textual nature, he focuses instead on an account of what is kwn of Shakespeare and his achievement at the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century. This is a concise, accessible introductions to major writers focusing equally on their life and works. Written in a lively style to appeal to both students and readers, books in the series are ideal guides to authors and their writing.
