Annotation This set provides a detailed and intimate account of the Elizabethan and Jacobean World picture. The volumes vividly convey life as it was in the days of Shakespeare; King James; the first voyage to the West Indies; the Great Plague of 1603; the Gunpowder Plot; the Civil War, and the first impact of Galileo's discoveries. In compiling these volumes, G.B. Harrison undertook a massive trawl of original sources of British social and political history of the period. Each journal contains a chronology of key events of the period, unfolding as they would for contemporaries. This rare panorama of one of England's most colourful periods in history provides an essential background for enlightened reading of Elizabethan and Jacobean literature, offering as it does, crucial insights into influences affecting the literature and attitudes of the time

Introducing Shakespeare by G. B Harrison( Book )

The author deals first and foremost with the legend and then with the life. In the light of modern research he explores the Elizabethan playhouse with the help of a set of graphic reconstructions and examines the effect of its complicated structure on the play itself. But it is in the chapter on the Lord Chamberlain Players that Shakespeare and his associates are most clearly seen against a background of theatrical rivalry, literary piracy, the closing of the playhouses in time of plague, the famous performance of Richard II in support of Essex, and the fire which finally destroyed the Globe

Shakespeare at work, 1592-1603 by G. B Harrison( Book )

47 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare against the background of his times, his world of the theatre and his dramatic development through the last years of Elizabeth's reign. Originally published in 1933 and republished in 1958, this great work is an imagining, in plain narrative, of the life of Shakespeare backed with evidence of the history of the stage. Whatever wider significances modern critics distill from Shakespeare's plays, it remains an elementary fact that he wrote plays to interest and entertain his contemporaries and this book takes a look at the immediate interests of his audience and how his work responde
