Description
William Shakespeare and his contemporaries helped create not only a new kind of theatre but also a new form of language, finding expression for what it means to be human. Charles Nicholl, who investigated the murder of Christopher Marlowe in The Reckoning, argues here that Shakespeare was no lone genius, but instead belonged to a talented and influential group of writers, poets, and dramatists—including Marlowe, Ben Jonson, John Donne, and Sir Walter Ralegh—who differ from the Bard chiefly in their lives and works being less studied. Illustrated throughout with portraits, engravings, and printed documents, Nicholl demonstrates how Elizabethan society valued literary talent as well as how these writers saw themselves.
