Shakespeare by F.E. Halliday

Book Description

F. E. Halliday presents in vivid detail what we know about Shakespeare's life after three centuries of discovery, and illuminates and animates the story with illustrations of Elizabethan personalities, pages from the early folios, maps, and photographs of Stratford-upon-Avon. Much of the great playwright's biography is mysterious, but F. E. Halliday (an authority on Elizabethan and Jacobean literature, and especially on Shakespeare) documents the Bard's life and work - reassuring us, incidentally, that William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon really was the author of the plays attributed to him.

Shakespeare in His Age by F.E. Halliday Shakespeare in His Age, Paperback (April 2004)

The life and work of Shakespeare is put into context in this fascinating volume, based on the assertion that in order to understand this great writer, we must appreciate the epoch in which he existed. Each year of his half-century lifetime is meticulously charted, noting the forces that helped to determine his development and his work.

Poetry of Shakespeare's Plays by F.E. Halliday Poetry of Shakespeare's Plays, Paperback (April 2001)

The zenith of Shakespeare's genius is his poetry, perhaps the finest written in any language, so a proper examination of his plays must start with the poetry in them. This title covers five main working periods, considering his words; the rhythmical relationship of the words; and, his metaphor and imagery - the subtlest mark of his genius.

Unfamiliar Shakespeare by F.E. Halliday Unfamiliar Shakespeare, Paperback (December 1999)

Scenes from lesser-known plays and extracts from poems are introduced with comprehensive introductions by a scholar who has the closest possible familiarity with Shakespeare's works. Including scenes from: Love's Labour's Lost, Troilus and Cressida, The Comedy of Errors, Henry VI, Titus Andronicus and All's Well That Ends Well.
