"Hailed as the world's greatest playwright, William Shakespeare has captured the hearts and minds of more audiences than any other. No other writer's works are more performed or more often quoted.
Produced in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and beautifully illustrated with both contemporary pictures from Shakespeare's time and photographs of RSC performances, Shakespeare: The Life, The Works, The Treasures brings the poet's life alive. It delves into the likely sources that inspired him to write such masterpieces as The Merchant of Venice, Othello and Macbeth and assesses the influences of subsequent generations of performers who have shown the ""infinite variety"" with which Shakespeare's work can be adapted for all forms of media. A must for both aficionados and those discovering him for the first time, Shakespeare: The Life, The Works, The Treasures is unique in containing 15 items of removable facsimile memorabilia including:
-Shakespeare's baptism record.
-An extract from the First Folio of 1623.
-Shakespeare's Will.
-An original costume design for a performance of King Lear.
-A ticket for Shakespeare's Jubilee celebrations in 1769.
-A poster advertising Laurence Olivier's film of Henry V.
23 cm x 29 cm 64 page hardcover with box slip case."
