A vivacious collection of stories from Tudor times, handed down through generations of storytellers

People long ago were no different from us: they laughed at the same things we do today, a fact that can be seen in Tudor folk tales. These were the stories that were told in alehouses and market places in days gone by and later collected in "chapbooks", the cheap print of the period. These entertaining stories are gleaned from these early sources, and are presented here alongside brief introductions and select court records from the time to help set them in context. This is not a book about Kings and Queens, but rather the "common sort", from quarreling scolds to coney-catchers—cheats plying their trade in the very tavern yards where the tales the author now tells were shared long ago.

From the Author:

This book is the product of 16 years experience of storytelling and prior to that 4 years working on an MA and first year of a PhD, studying how Tudor men and women related to each other. Both the court records I use to introduce each story and the stories themselves show us something of the realities of life for the 'common sort,' the poorer people of Tudor times and also the 'middling sort,' who are often hidden in official sources of the time. They show us that people long ago were not that different to us - the challenges they faced were often different but they were not.  I've also included the odd quote from William Shakespeare in my introductions, because they help give context to the stories and also because some of the tales from the cheap print of the period, including a few adapted for my book, influenced Shakespeare as well as other Tudor and Jacobean playwrights.

About the Author:

Dave Tonge is a professional storyteller. He works at schools, museums and heritage sites, as well as literary, folk, and storytelling festivals. Some of the places he has told include Shakespeare's Birthplace, Ann Hathaway's Cottage, The Historic Royal Palaces, The British Museum, The Asmolean Museum in Oxford and many a castle and historic house.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In Tudor times the `common sort' were no different from us, laughing together, mocking each other and sharing bawdy tales in tavern yards, marketplaces and anywhere else that people came together. These stories were later collected in the cheap print of the period, and professional storyteller Dave Tonge has sought them out to assemble here. Within these pages hide smooth-talking tricksters, lusty knaves, wayward youths and stories of the eternal struggle to wear the breeches in the family, for a sometimes coarse but often comic telling of the everyday ups and downs in Tudor life.
