Description

An exploration through maps of the land and time in which Shakespeare wrote.

This beautiful new book looks at the England, Europe, and wider world in which William Shakespeare worked through maps and illustrations that reveal the way that he and his Tudor contemporaries saw their land and their place in the world. Lovers of Shakespeare's plays will delight in seeing Romeo and Juliet's 16th century Verona, and the Venice of Antonio and Shylock. Mapping Shakespeare explores the locations of his plays and looks at the possible inspirations for these and why Shakespeare would have chosen to set his stories there.
