Mapping Shakespeare's World

Bodleian Library

The locations of Shakespeare's plays range from Greece, Turkey and Syria to England, and they range in time from 1000 BC to the early Tudor age; always in places remote in space or time. A fascinating and fully-illustrated study exploring the geographical and historical background of Shakespeare’s plays through contemporary maps, texts and paintings. Demonstrating how many of Shakespeare’s locations had resonances which an Elizabethan audience would understand, and showing how significant the geographical and historical background of the plays could be. For instance, why should ‘Love's Labour's Lost’ be set in the Pyrenean kingdom of Navarre? Was the Forest of Arden really in Warwickshire? Why did Shakespeare sometimes shift the settings of the plays from those he found in his literary sources?
