Shakespeare's Life and Times

The "Soest" portrait. Reproduced by permission of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

Shakespeare's Life and Times introduces you to the world Shakespeare lived and worked in. This section of the Internet Shakespeare Editions is like a shelf of books, each of which is listed in the navigational bar beneath the page header. Each book, in turn, is divided into chapters dealing with related topics.
