The contributors address the way the illustrations illuminate the history of book production, marketing, and readership; and the writers also consider how artists have interpreted Chaucer's text."--Jacket
The definitive Shakespeare companion : overviews, documents, and analysis( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare's works often served to convey simple truths, but they are also complex, multilayered masterpieces. Shakespeare drew on varied sources to create his plays, and while the plays are sometimes set in worlds before the Elizabethan age, they nonetheless parallel and comment on situations in his own era. Written with the needs of students in mind, this four-volume set demystifies Shakespeare for today's readers and provides the necessary perspective and analysis students need to better appreciate the genius of his work. This indispensable ready reference examines Shakespeare's plots, language, and themes; his use of sources and exploration of issues important to his age; the interpretation of his works through productions from the Renaissance to the present; and the critical reaction to key questions concerning his writings. The book provides coverage of each key play and poems in discrete sections, with each section presenting summaries; discussions of themes, characters, language, and imagery; and clear explications of key passages. Readers will be able to inspect historical documents related to the topics explored in the work being discussed and view excerpts from Shakespeare's sources as well as reviews of major productions. The work also provides a comprehensive list of print and electronic resources suitable for student research." -- Publisher's website

Prince of forgers by Henri Léonard Bordier( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prince of Forgers is the true story about one of history's most audacious frauds and of the trial that exposed the most colossal literary crime ever perpetrated on learned men. Vrain-Denis Lucas was a self-educated peasant who shook the foundations of the French Academy of Sciences. As a patriot and lover of history, Lucas created over 27,000 forgeries and tried to change the course of French destiny. After fifteen years of scholarly but spurious activity, Lucas' recklessness and disdain for credibility reached new heights as he began writing autographed letters by Mary Magdalene, Cleopatra, and Alexander the Great, in modern French, and selling them for thousands of francs. Professor Rosenblum's long-awaited translation of this French forgery classic is a must-read for any collector interested in the darker side of literary history

All the world's a stage : a guide to Shakespearean sites by Joseph Rosenblum( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In All the World's a Stage: A Guide to Shakespearean Sites, Joseph Rosenblum identifies and describes all of the settings featured in the bard's plays--from modest dwellings noted in a brief scene to the wide array of castles depicted in many of his histories and tragedies. Locations that figure significantly in Shakespeare's plays include Austria in Measure for Measure, Cypress in Othello, Illyria in Twelfth Night, Egypt in Antony and Cleopatra, and Flroence in All's Well That End's Well, among others. Historic buildings are also scrutinized, from the Tower of London in several plays to Notre Dame in Henry VI and the Forum in Julius Caesar. In addition to plot summaries, the author analyzes the choice of locations, delineating the historically prominent settings of Shakespeare's epic dramas, such as the glorified Rome and the sensual Egypt that Marc Antony is torn between in his pursuit of Cleopatra. Rosenblum also discusses how some of Shakespeare's settings were either altered or invented for dramatic purposes, such as the imagined sea coast of Bohemia in A Winter's Tale and Prospero's island in The Tempest. Though focused on plays, this volume also discusses locations associated with Shakespeare that do not appear in his works. In addition to descriptions of very real settings throughout Great Britain, the author notes underground stops in London ideal for tourist exploration. Indeed, anyone interested in a Shakespearean tour of England will find material here for designing such a trip. Meticulously researched and featuring an appendix of works by location, All the World's a Stage: A Guide to Shakespearean Sites is an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and fans of England's greatest playwright.--Publisher's description
