Editorial Review
British Shakespearean scholar JOHN DOVER WILSON (1881-1969) is best remembered for his explications of the Bard, particularly his acclaimed 1935 work What Happens in Hamlet. Here, however, he takes a rather more oblique approach to enlightening us to the world of Shakespeare, gathering together in this 1913 volume writings by contemporaries of the playwright's-some famous, some not-that illuminate the artistic society and ordinary life of Elizabethan England. Discover what the firsthand observers of the day thought about: • English snobbery • country sports • festivals and revelry • superstition, ghosts, and astrology • parenting and children • impressions of London • the plague • playhouses and bear-gardens • the actor and his craft • house and home • rogues and vagabonds • and much, much more
