Shakespeare on Stage, Paperback Book


Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. Shakespeare's reputation since his death has been so spectacular that we can be misled into thinking of him as a genius working in inspired solitude.

But theatre is practical, collaborative and commercial, and plays emerge from the historical, cultural and social influences of their birth.

Shakespeare on Stage provides invaluable information on the theatre of Shakespeare's lifetime, but it also explores a wider context.
