Shakespeare of London
A study of the bard, the theatre and his city
First UK edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 348pp.
Chute's account of Shakespeare's life and times is based solely on contemporary documents which emphasize the famed playwright's life as a working member of the London theatre—as an actor, a director, a producer, a playwright and theatre owner. Of equal importance in this book is the city of London itself—that brilliant, lively, creative city in which Shakespeare's art was feted and through which it flourished.
The book is in very good condition, The dustwrapper has chipping to the edges, a little fading and has been price-clipped.
