    Shakespeare wrote different types of plays – histories, tragedies and comedies, as well as some mixtures called ‘problem plays’. He drew on many different sources to create his unique plays.   This book ascertains what sources Shakespeare used for the plots of his plays and discusses the use he made of them; and secondly illustrates how his general reading is woven into the texture of his work. Few Elizabethan dramatists took such pains as Shakespeare in the collection of source-material. Frequently the sources were apparently.

    Although Shakespeare, unlike Marlowe, never received a college education, his school education, in the traditions of the time, had to be classical and he had to master Latin and Greek on some level. It is possible then that Shakespeare could have used his own translations of some phrases and passages. It was probably on this source that Shakespeare mostly depended for the construction of his tremendous r, was the material that Shakespeare used a player’s copy of the script of this lost play, or some earlier play he himself wrote on the basis of an earlier revenge play as Santayana mentions, remains completely in a matter of.

Sometimes he worked from the stories of comparatively recent Italian writers, such as Giovanni Boccaccio—using both well-known stories (Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing) and little.

No writer’s living reputation can compare to that of Shakespeare, whose notable plays included the tragedies Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, and Othello.

He was also known for his sonnets. Edward Alleyn wrote his name twice in his books, once on the title page and once on the verso of the last leaf. Among other Shakespeare contemporaries who were also book-markers, Ann Raynor used a tidy and legible script to sign her books on the inside of the front cover, while Humphrey Dyson ink-stamped the date on his books in a manner as.

Scott Newstok's new book, How to Think Like Shakespeare: Lessons From a Renaissance Education (Princeton University Press), is about more than the Bard.

It's a challenge to the ideas that education is strictly about what you can assess or data that will lead to jobs. Newstok clearly believes, though, that an education on Shakespeare will help many people -- and not just English.

Shakespeare drew from two main sources in composing Othello, with one contributing the play’s story and the other contributing to the characterization of story of Shakespeare’s Othello comes from the Hecatommithi, a collection of tales published in by Giraldi o in turn had been influenced by the Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio.

But Shakespeare uses his sources in many interesting and various ways. In this series I mean to take a detailed at the ways in which Shakespeare worked with the literature that inspired him.

Romeo and Juliet: Sources. Shakespeare's primary source for Romeo and Juliet was a poem by Arthur Brooke called The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Iuliet, written in He also could have known the popular tale of Romeo and Juliet from a collection by William Painter, entitled The Palace of Pleasure, which was written sometime before After the birth of his twins inShakespeare disappeared from public record untilwhen his works began appearing on the London stage.

These seven years are known as "Shakespeare's Lost Years," and have been the source of various stories that remain unverified, including a salacious story involving Shakespeare escaping Stratford.

Smiley’s story of a family farm being incorporated and divided between three daughters follows the fundamental plot of King Lear pretty closely, mapping the major elements to a modern world.
