Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ] ೆ ePUB By Stephen Greenblatt ೮ There s no shortage of good Shakespearean biographies But Stephen Greenblatt, brilliant scholar and author of Will in the World How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare, reminds us that the surviving traces are abundant but thin as to known facts He acknowledges the paradox of the many biographies spun out of conjecture but then produces a book so persuasive and breathtakingly enjoyable that one wonders what he could have done if the usual stuff of biographical inquiry memoirs, interviews, manuscripts, and drafts had been at his disposal Greenblatt uses the verbal traces in Shakespeare s work to take us back into the life he lived and into the world to which he was so open Whenever possible, he also ushers us from the extraordinary life into the luminous work The result is a marvelous blend of scholarship, insight, observation, and, yes, conjecture but conjecture always based on the most convincing and inspired reasoning and evidence Particularly compelling are Greenblatt s discussions of the playwright s relationship with the university wit Robert Greene discussed as a chief source for the character of Falstaff and of Hamlet in relation to the death of Shakespeare s son Hamnet, his aging father, and the world of damaged rituals that England s Catholics were forced to endure Will in the World is not just the life story of the world s most revered writer It is the story, too, of 16th and 17th century England writ large, the story of religious upheaval and political intrigue, of country festivals and brutal public executions, of the court and the theater, of Stratford and London, of martyrdom and recusancy, of witchcraft and magic, of love and death in short, of the private but engaged William Shakespeare in his remarkable world Throughout the book, Greenblatt s style is breezy and familiar He often refers to the poet simply as Will Yet for all his alacrity of style and the book s accessibility, Will in the World is profoundly erudite, an enormous contribution to the world of Shakespearean letters Silvana Tropea Interview with Stephen Greenblatt Stephen Greenblatt shares his thoughts about what make Shakespeare Shakespeare and why the Bard continues to fascinate us endlessly.This much awaited new biography of the elusive Bard is brilliant in conception, often superb in execution, but sometimesperhaps inevitablydisappointing in its degree of speculativeness Bardolators may take this last for granted, but curious lay readers seeking a fully cohesive and convincing life may at times feel the accumulation of may haves, might haves and could haves make it difficult to suspend disbelief Greenblatt s espousing, for instance, of the theory that Shakespeare s lost years before arriving in London were spent in Lancashire leads to suppositions that he might have met the Catholic subversive Edmund Campion, and how that might have affected himand it all rests on one factoid the bequeathing by a nobleman of some player s items to a William Shakeshafte, who may, plausibly, have been the young Shakespeare Nevertheless, Norton Shakespeare general editor and New Historicist Greenblatt succeed impressively in locating the man in both his greatest works and the turbulent world in which he lived With a blend of biography, literary interpretation and history, Greenblatt persuasively analyzes William s father s rise and fall as a public figure in Stratford, which pulled him in both Protestant and Catholic directions and made his eldest son a master of double consciousness In a virtuoso display of historical and literary criticism, Greenblatt contrasts Christopher Marlowe s Jew of Malta, Elizabeth s unfortunate Sephardic physicianwho was executed for conspiracyand Shakespeare s ambiguous villain Shylock This wonderful study, built on a lifetime s scholarship and a profound ability to perceive the life within the texts, creates as vivid and full portrait of Shakespeare as we are likely ever to have 16 pages color illus not seen by PW Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
