Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Joseph Papp, American's foremost theater  producer, and writer Elizabeth Kirkland: a  captivating tour through the world of William Shakespeare.  Discover the London of Shakespeare's time, a  fascinating place to be--full of mayhem and magic,  exploration and exploitation, courtiers and  foreigners. Stroll through narrow, winding streets crowded  with merchants and minstrels, hoist a pint in a  rowdy alehouse, and hurry across the river to the  open-air Globe Theater to see that latest play  written by a young man named Will Shakespeare.  Shakespeare Alive! spirits you back  to the very years of that London--as everyday  people might have experienced it. Find out how young  people fell in love, how workers and artists made  ends meet, what people found funny and what they  feared most. Go on location with an Elizabethan  theater company to learn how plays were produced,  where Shakespeare's plots came from and how he  transformed them. Hear the music of Shakespeare's  language and words we still use today that were first  spoken in his time. Open the book and elbow your  way into the Globe with the groundlings. You'll  be joining one of the most democratic audiences the  theater has ever known--alewives, apprentices,  shoemakers and nobles--in applauding the dazzling  wordplay and swordplay brought to you by William  Shakespeare.
