Summary note
"The intriguing stories behind objects such as paintings, maps, clothing and furniture, are used to illuminate the world in which our greatest playwright lived and worked. These remarkably rich and varied objects can help us understand the early modern experience of religious and social change, education, birth, marriage, death, family, professional and community life, all so vividly portrayed in Shakeseare's drama." -- Cover.
