For many, Shakespeare represents the advent of modernity. It is easy to forget that he was in fact a writer deeply embedded in the Middle Ages, who inherited many of his shaping ideas and assumptions from the medieval past. This collection brings together essays by internationally renowned scholars of medieval and early modern literature, the history of the book and theatre history to present new perspectives on Shakespeare and his medieval heritage. Separated into four parts, the collection explores Shakespeare and his work in the context of the Middle Ages, medieval books and language, the British past, and medieval conceptions of drama and theatricality, together showing Shakespeare's work as rooted in late medieval history and culture. Insisting upon Shakespeare's complexity and medieval multiplicity, Medieval Shakespeare gives readers the opportunity to appreciate both Shakespeare and his period within the traditions that fostered and surrounded him.

Book Description:

Before Shakespeare is our contemporary he is the contemporary of late-medieval European culture, self-consciously regenerating and transforming earlier ideas of history, art, poetry and the stage. This book gives readers the opportunity to appreciate both Shakespeare and his period from the perspectives of the traditions that fostered and surrounded him.

About the Author:

Ruth Morse is professeur des universits at the Universit Paris-Sorbonne-Cit. Her books include two edited volumes, Shakespeare, les franais, les France (2008) and a volume of Great Shakespeareans; the monograph Truth and Convention in the Middle Ages: Rhetoric, Reality, and Representation (1991), and she is currently completing Imagined Histories: Fictions of the Past from Beowulf to Shakespeare.
