Shakespeare's Flowering of the Spirit by Margaret Bennell

Book Description

What is the quality in Shakespeare's dramas which gives them their perennial human appeal and makes them as popular today as they were to his own contemporaries? Many Shakespearian critics have sought to answer this question. Margaret Bennell, however, approaches the problem by venturing into the relatively untrodden domain of the inner soul-spiritual development of the dramatist. She illustrates her study with details from plays, including "Love's Labour's Lost", "The Merchant of Venice", "Hamlet", "King Lear" and "The Tempest". She also makes frequent reference to the Rosicrucian spiritual movement that was a dominant influence of that age. This is a challenging and informative book, a must for any student of Shakespeare.

Author Biography - Margaret Bennell

Margaret Bennell (1887-1971) founded the Wynstones Steiner-Waldorf School near Gloucester, and in 1948 founded Hawkwood College near Stroud as an international centre for the study of anthroposophy. She died before she could complete Shakespeare's Flowing of the Spirit. Isabel Wyatt (1901-1992) is a well-known collector and re-teller of stories for children, and her books include The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book and The Book of Fairy Princes. She worked closely with Margaret Bennell at Hawkwood College where they produced joint lecture-courses. It was this close cooperation that enabled Isabel Wyatt to complete and edit Shakespeare's Flowering of the Spirit after Margaret Bennell's death.
