"This unique experiment in multiple biography is the first substantial attempt ... to bring into clear light what actually is known about the man William Shakespeare. The thousands of letters, diaries, and personal papers consulted by Professor Schoenbaum in widely scattered collections; the documents, newspapers, and articles - and the forgeries - yield fresh, sometimes dramatic information about a host of controversial characters and incidents. Mr. Schoenbaum begins with the Shakespeare of documentary record - poet of the London stage and property owner of Stratford. He proceeds to the Shakespeare of legend - deer poacher, ale-toper, and valiant lover. Other Shakespeares follow: the playwright as protagonist of a host of biographies, popular and scholarly, which often reveal more of the biographer than of his subject's life. There is the Shakespeare for whom an imaginary history was invented, with forged documents, by William Henry Ireland in the eighteenth century; and later, by the cleverer and more seasoned J. Payne Collier. There is also the Shakespeare who appears in numerous plays or novels by, for instance, Sir Walter Scott and Anthony Burgess. Lastly, there is the Shakespeare who never was: anti-hero of a vast and eccentric literature crediting his other works to other writers - Francis Bacon, the Earl of Oxford, or Christopher Marlowe"--Front flap

Elizabethan theater : essays in honor of S. Schoenbaum( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabethan Theater is a collection of essays offered in celebration of the long career of Samuel Schoenbaum. Throughout his career as biographer, bibliographer, historian, critic, and editor of scholarly journals, he has greatly enriched our appreciation of Shakespeare and his fellows. These essays celebrate the many ways in which he has enhanced our understanding through his skill in balancing historical contexts with a recognition and respect for the importance of individual authorship. Distinguished scholars from many countries, representing many points of view, have chosen to honor Schoenbaum by contributing essays that explore the four overlapping areas with which his own research has mainly been concerned: biographical scholarship, the concept of authorship, the hand of the author perceived within the play, and the multiple historical contexts that helped to determine how Elizabethan plays were written and received
