Delia Garratt & Tara Hamling (Editors)

A lavishly illustrated and unique view of Shakespeare's life and times with beautiful images and photographs of objects in the collections of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Stratford upon Avon.

This accessible, object-based exploration of the role and significance of paintings, furniture, ceramics, and textiles, in the everyday experience of people living in Shakespearean England, is based around the Seven Ages of Man speech from As You Like It. The book reveals how material objects can provide greater insight into religious & social change, education, birth, marriage & death, family life, and professional & community life.

Publisher: Bloomsbury in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
