Abstract:

This concise, illustrated dictionary of Shakepeariana, compiled by one of the best-known authorities on his works, guides the reader to a wealth of information on all aspects of Shakespeare in his own time and on his impact and influence in later ages. 20 illustrations. Stanley Wells provides clear entries on: Shakespeare's life and times, the sources and early publication of his works, their performance history on stage and screen, actors such as Edmund Kean and Kenneth Branagh, and writers especially associated with them, operas and other musical works deriving from them, theaters, editions, international Shakespeare organizations-in short, on all aspects of Shakespearean interest. The volume is complemented by a series of striking pronouncements about Shakespeare over the ages from Jane Austen to Bernard Levin, tables providing interesting facts about the plays, famous documents bearing Shakespeare's signature, and a useful guide to further reading.
