Shakespeare's England: Life in Elizabethan & Jacobean Times Paperback - 2001

by R. E. Pritchard (Editor); R. E. Pritchard (Illustrator)


From the publisher

What was life like in Shakespeare's time - or what did people then say it was like? This volume provides a picture of the age through a selection of Elizabethan and Jacobean writing taken from books, plays, poems, letters, diaries and pamphlets by and about Shakespeare's contemporaries. Extracts have been chosen from the works of a wide range of writers, including William Harrison and Fynes Moryson (providing descriptions of England), Nicholas Breton (on country life), Isabella Whitney and Thomas Dekker (on London life), Nashe (on struggling writers), Stubbes (on a Puritan's view of Elizabethan enjoyments), Harsnet and Burton (on witches and spirits), John Donne (meditations on prayer and death), King James I (on tobacco), and Shakespeare himself. Also included are accounts of theatre-going, May Day celebrations, Queen Elizabeth at court, the place of women, education, garden books and herbals, clothes, food, drink and religion. The extracts are organised thematically with each section having an introduction reflecting modern historical research.
