Book Description
While the age of Shakespeare overlapped with the both the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras, Kermode`s compact, erudite appreciation of the Bard is less about Shakespeare`s private life and turbulent times than his theatrical milieu and the worlds he created for the stage. Quick summaries of the pressing political issues of the Protestant Reformation and the successor Queen Elizabeth are followed by up-to-date surveys of the debates over Shakespeare`s possible crypto-Catholicism and his "missing" years. But Kermode hits his stride with the plays. His breakdown of Shakespeare`s artistic development and mature achievement by the various acting companies and theaters he was associated with-from the Lord Chamberlain`s Company to the renamed King`s Men, from the Theatre and the Rose to the Globe and Blackfriars-proves a satisfying structure to match the swift pace. Inevitably, the brevity of the Chronicles format can`t provide equal time to all of Shakespeare`s million-plus words of dramatic poetry, and Kermode prefers the tragedies and romances over the histories and comedies (to say nothing of the sonnets). Occasionally shifting to lectern manner, he also revisits some of his favorite tropes, which he explored in Shakespeare`s Language, such as rhetorical doubling and pairing in Hamlet and the theme of equivocation in Macbeth. While Ben Jonson declared, "[Shakespeare] was not for an age, but for all time!" Kermode pleasurably shows how he and his works were of their age and also transcended it.-- was not for an age, but for all time!"
