Book Description
Shakespeare`s great metaphor for the journey of life, the Seven Ages of Man, is one of the most vivid and enduring in the English language. But Shakespeare didn`t invent it. On the contrary, it was a much-used, even hackneyed, literary convention of the period. In the same way, Shakespeare himself has been buried under a whole canon of tired biographical myths. In this magnificent new portrait, Jonathan Bate argues that to appreciate what makes the man and his work unique, we must first inhabit the extraordinary, colourful land often violent world in which he lived. How did plague turn Shakespeare from a jobbing hack into a courtly poet? How did Bottom`s dream rewrite the Bible? How did Shakespeare`s plays lead to the deaths of an earl and a king? And why was he the one dramatist of his generation never to be imprisoned?
