Shakespeare and the Stuff of Life edited by Delia Garratt & Tara Hamling
A 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 and social change, education, birth, marriage and death, family life, and professional and community life.
Published by Bloomsbury in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
