Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This major new reference book presents more than 700 biographies of Shakespeare's contemporaries and richly illustrates the variety and complexity of the life of the period he lived. With its useful glossary of unusual terms, and extensive cross-references, this invaluable book emphasizes the cultural continuity between the last phase of Elizabethan England and the Jacobean age, and the authors also pay attention to American connections. This extensive and detailed study will be invaluable to all those interested in Shakespeare and his times.

Book News Annotation:

Presents some 700 concise biographies of important people of Shakespeare's time (1588-1623), in the arts, politics, the Church, the Court, the secret service, and the theater. Shakespeare's family and Stratford connections are included, along with many lesser figures whom he knew personally, and others whose fame or notoriety may have influenced him. Attention is also given to American connections. Includes a glossary, cross-references, and b&w illustrations. First published in 1981. Some entries include references, and this reprint updates those references.
