The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

Capa
Pan Macmillan, 2011 - 726 páginas

This re-set edition of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare contains all the plays and poems; the plays are arranged in the chronological order of their composition, not gathered into comedies, histories and tragedies - the traditional method dating from the first folio.

The text is taken from the Shakespeare Head Press edition edited by Arthur Henry Bullen, and this volume also contains John Aubrey's Brief Life of Shakespeare, a biography of Sir John Gilbert, an account of The Shakespeare Head Press edition, a glossary, and a bibliography.

This volume is illustrated throughout with 500 of Sir John Gilbert's (1817-97) superb drawings, engraved on steel by Thomas Dalziel (1823-I906) and Edward Dalziel (1817-1905). With his prolific historical paintings, John Gilbert was often referred to as 'The Scott of Painting', although he was equally active as a book illustrator, producing cuts for editions of Shakespeare, Cervantes, Sir Walter Scott, and other writers venerated during the Victorian era, as well as such contemporary and popular writers as Dickens.

Acerca do autor (2011)

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, in 1564. The date of his birth is not known but is traditionally 23 April, St George's Day. Aged 18, he married a Stratford farmer's daughter, Anne Hathaway. They had three children. Around 1585 William joined an acting troupe on tour in Stratford from London, and thereafter spent much of his life in the capital. A member of the leading theatre group in London, the Chamberlain's Men, which built the Globe Theatre and frequently performed in front of Queen Elizabeth I, Shakespeare wrote 36 plays and much poetry besides. He died in 1616.
