Shakespeare and Elizabethan Popular Culture by Stuart Gillespie
Book DescriptionWhile much has been written on Shakespeare's debt to the classical tradition, less has been said about his roots in the popular culture of his own time. This is the first book to explore the full range of his debts to Elizabethan popular culture. Topics covered include the mystery plays, festive custom, clowns, romance and popular fiction, folklore and superstition, everyday sayings, and popular songs. These essays show how Shakespeare, throughout his dramatic work, used popular culture. A final chapter, which considers ballads with Shakespearean connections in the seventeenth century, shows how popular culture immediately after his time used Shakespeare.

Volume 2 explores the period when a drive, unprecedented in its energy and scope, to bring foreign writing of all kinds into English emerged, and when translation became a key part of the English writer's career. Translation was also fundamental in the evolution of the still unfixed English language and its still unfixed literary styles.
