9780950671512: Shakespeare's Don Quixote

SHAKESPEARE'S DON QUIXOTE recreates what might have been: a lost play presented at Whitehall Palace in 1613. That year Shakespeare's company provided 14 plays for a royal wedding. One was called Cardenio. The original script has never been found but an 18th century version, retitled Double Falsehood, may contain echoes of their work together. Cardenio's story occurs in Don Quixote, Cervantes's universal best-seller, wherein the vexed teenager protagonist encounters the would-be knight errant and his sceptical squire. If Shakespeare's attention was drawn to the story's dramatic potential it seems likely it would have featured Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, since by that time Cervantes's double act was appearing on stage and in carnivals worldwide. Acting upon this hypothesis Robin Chapman's novel plays out today in a theatre of the mind. Among the audience the reader will find the attentive spirits of Shakespeare, Fletcher and Cervantes who soon become involved with each other and in the performance.

Book Description Book Now Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 228 pages. A work as Quixotic in style as its title implies, and as multiple in its play with meanings and connections, past and present. It is set in the theatre of Robin Chapmans mind, which proves a magical arena. This recovery of Shakespeares lost play, Cardenio, is both topical and made to yield a treasure trove of information, textual, biographical and critical. Always in the spirit of high comedy. A real instance of subtle learning worn with a deceptive lightness of touch. Jean GooderLearned, structurally ingenious, evocative and pleasurable. Karl MillerThe novel successfully creates the bustling action of early modern drama. Don Quixote and his squire furnish the perfect subplot. What distinguishes Chapmans work is its interrogation of adaptation itself. Compelling. The Times Literary SupplementSHAKESPEARES DON QUIXOTE recreates what might have been: a lost play presented at Whitehall Palace in 1613. On St Valentines day of that year King Jamess daughter, Princess Elizabeth Stuart, married a German prince, the Elector Palatine. Shakespeares company the Kings Men provided fourteen plays for this magnificent state event. One was called Cardenio; registered for publication forty years later as by Mr Fletcher and, as an apparent afterthought, Shakespeare. The original script has never been found but an enigmatic 18th century version, retitled Double Falsehood, may contain echoes of their work together. Cardenios story occurs in Don Quixote, Cervantess instant, universal best-seller. The vexed teenage protagonist, along with three other young lovers, encounters the would-be knight errant and his sceptical squire. If John Fletcher, as dramaturge-designate with the Kings Men, did draw Shakespeares attention to the storys dramatic potential he regularly raided Cervantess works for plots it seems inconceivable that their collaboration would not have featured Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Shakespeare would have found them irresistible. Acting upon this hypothesis Robin Chapmans novel plays out today in a theatre of the mind. Among the audience the reader will find the attentive spirits of Shakespeare, Fletcher and Cervantes. Inevitably they soon become involved with each other and in the performance. ROBIN CHAPMAN began his career as an actor at Cambridge (he played Hamlet in the ADCs centenary production and was president of the Marlowe Society) before holding a spear at Stratford-Upon-Avon, working in repertory and then joining Joan Littlewoods revolutionary Theatre Workshop where he turned to writing. Among his stage plays are High Street China, Guests and One of Us. His television plays have won awards from the Mystery Writers of America and the Writers Guild as well as a Bafta nomination. Three of his ten novels to date form a trilogy extending the lives and experiences of characters found in Don Quixote. They are available from Oxbow Books at Oxford. Reviewing the first book of the trilogy The Duchesss Diary in the Times Literary Supplement E. C. Riley said that it shows a truer understanding of Cervantes than twenty books of criticism while Karl Miller in the London Review of Books acclaimed Chapmans learned and yet fully animate invention.
