American scholar James Shapiro examines the plays Shakespeare wrote during the turbulent reign of Elizabeth's successor, King James I. One of the new king's first official acts was to name Shakespeare a king's man. Shapiro convincingly argues that the dark, complex plays of Shakespeare's last decade-King Lear, Macbeth, and The Tempest, among others-mirrored both royal life and the era's profound social changes.

An insightful look at the context in which Shakespeare wrote his plays during the reign of James.

Insightful look at Shakespeare during the time of King James, the influence of the time on the plays in the latter part of his career, and how events inspired him. James Shapiro has a voice you pay attention to, and an enthusiasm for the subject, and he takes us quite in depth to the times and the places as they appear today.
