Críticas:


"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, author of Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare and general editor of The Norton Shakespeare


Reseña del editor:

For any lover of Shakespeare, the thought of time-traveling back to London to see one of his plays at the Globe represents the ultimate theatrical fantasy. The look and feel of Shakespeare's London, the streets, shops, and churches the poet would have visited; the bookstalls where he found source material; the objects that appeared on his stages or sparked his imagination--what were they like?

Shakespeare: Staging the World is based on an extraordinary collection of objects that evoke London in 1612, bringing to life not only Shakespeare the man, but also the characters, places, and events--real and imagined--featured in his plays. Jonathan Bate and Dora Thornton give readers a visual tour of Renaissance London, letting us glimpse the time and place through a series of objects that speak volumes about Shakespeare's day. 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 ofRomeo 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 forMacbeth.

Authoritative, evocative, and filled with surprises, Shakespeare: Staging the World offers a completely new approach to one of the most creative imaginations in history and opens a window onto a fascinating moment in London's past.

Descripción Condición: New. This book provides an unique insight into the emerging role of London as a world city, seen through the innovative perspective of Shakespeare?s plays. It also explores the pivotal role of the playhouse as a window to the world outside London, and the playwright?s importance in shaping a new sense of national identity. Shakespeare the man, and London as it was around 400 years ago, are brought to life through amazing objects drawn from the British Museum?s collection and across Europe. Maps, prints, drawings and paintings, arms and armour, coins, medals and other intriguing items are all examined through the lens of Shakespeare?s plays. 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 . . . the book should never go out of print. EVENING STANDARD. Nº de ref. del artículo: 2758
