William Shakespeare - William Shakespeare - Shakespeare’s sources: With a few exceptions, Shakespeare did not invent the plots of his plays. Sometimes he used old stories (Hamlet, Pericles).

Pp. x + $ cloth. Shakespeare and the Origins of English is a challenging and elusive book, one that defies an effort to provide a comprehensive statement of its goals and achievements.

Lively, provocative, and rich in ideas, Shakespeare and the Origins of English is a stimulating contribution to the debate about contemporary, as well as early modern, literary education. History of English Literature is a comprehensive, eight-volume survey of English literature from the Middle Ages to the early twenty-first century.

This reference work provides insightful and often revisionary readings of core texts in the English literary canon. Richly informative analyses are framed by the biographical, historical and Author: Franco Marucci.
