The Life of William Shakespeare

Who was William Shakespeare, really? This biography is an exploration of Shakespeare's life and works, focusing on often neglected literary and historical contexts such as what he read, who he worked with as an author and an actor, and how these various collaborations may have affected his writing. Drawing in particular on the idea of literary personality and on new discoveries about collaboration, the author looks at Shakespeare's role models, both real and fictional. The focus throughout is on Shakespeare's words and on what he learned about writing for his audiences, which the author suggests were more varied than has been thought. Written by a Shakespearean scholar and experienced theatre reviewer, it pays particular attention to Shakespeare's theatrical contemporaries and the ways in which they influenced his writing, offering an account of the life and work of the great poet-dramatist, structured around the idea of memory.

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects. The Collected Critical Heritage set will be available as a set of 68 volumes and the series will also be available in mini sets selected by period (in slipcase boxes) and as individual volumes.

William Shakespeare

But thy eternal summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st: So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. -- from Sonnet 18 No home should be without this: every play, from the early histories to the sad, wise Winter's Tale and The Tempest; every exquisitely crafted sonnet; every long poem (such as Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece) written by the greatest writer in the English language. This edition of the Bard of Avon's complete works is a facsimile of the definitive Shakespeare Head edition published originally in Oxford, England. All the plays are arranged in chronological order of their composition, rather than by genre, so that the evolution of Shakespeare's monumental genius can be more easily followed and appreciated.
