Shakespeare, Burgess, Anthony
10 Burgess, Anthony Shakespeare
London Jonathan Cape 1970 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 26cm 
272 crisp pp & a kilo to post. Like Burgess's early novel, Nothing Like the Sun: A Story of Shakespeare's Love-Life, this equally delightful factual treatment of what we know of the Bard combines Burgess's stimulating erudition and his well-informed imagination. The result is at once a speculative biography, a theatrical history, and a re-creation of the Elizabethan age. Whether a vivid retracing of the evolution Elizabethan theater, a bravura reconstruction of the first performance of Hamlet, an infiltration of the intricacies of the court of the Virgin Queen, or an elegy on the era's end with the distrastrous Essex Rebellion, Burgess -- author of the classic A Clockwork Orange -- sets the stage for England's most glorious time and turns the spotlight on the figure of William Shakespeare. reviewer says > "Bright, racy...knowledgeable and humorous, alternately sensible and quirky."
