Opening with the big picture of the religious and dynastic events that defined England in the age of the Tudors, Kermode takes the reader on a tour of Shakespeare\'s England, vividly portraying London\'s society, its early capitalism, its court, its bursting population, and its epidemics, as well as its arts - including, of course, its theater. Then Kermode focuses on Shakespeare himself and his career, all in the context of the time in which he lived. Kermode reads each play against the backdrop of its probable year of composition, providing new historical insights into Shakespeare\'s characters, themes, and sources.\"--BOOK JACKET.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
