Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Lively is too bland a word for the provocation and the energy and, finally, the subtle refinement of Russell Fraser's narrative art. Paradox? He contains contradictions. Alive-and-kicking is more like it, and this new book, finishing off the remarkable biographical narrative begun with Young Shakespeare, is a stunning piece of work, sentence by singing-and-dancing sentence, as he follows the mature Shakespeare, in his world and at his vocation, from London in 1594 up to the end in Stratford in 1616. The times and society are accurately, resonantly evoked; and the life is given careful weight in its impact on the art—'But the personal life, though he buries it deep, participates in his art, an energizing presence.' As engaging to read as any novel, solid yet adventurously innovative in its scholarship and critical acumen, original in its bold blending of the imaginative and the factual, Shakespeare: The Later Years is a triumphant achievement, a major contribution to the appreciation of our greatest poet." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
