YA-- This look at the Bard begins in 1594, where Fraser's Young Shakespeare (Columbia University Pr, 1988) ends, and continues through his death in 1616. The author offers detailed critiques of Shakespeare's writings, at times comparing several works. Politics, history, and daily life are drawn almost as background for the plays. Shakespeare, the man, is both the subject and the thread that binds the book. Advanced students will have their knowledge enhanced by this chronological union of the person, his work, and the era. All can dip into a time period, trace the playwright's life, seek out a historic circumstance, etc., (although they may well need a dictionary for full comprehension). While this is primarily a reference for study in upper high school English classes, some YAs will enjoy this challenging work on its own merits.
