Find out more about Shakespeare and the Playwrights

 
 

Much of what we know—or think we know—about the Tudors comes to us through the playwrights of the Elizabethan era, and Mr. Shakespeare in particular. Certainly the drama and pageantry that so capture our imaginations are preserved in these works, which themselves reveal much about life in late 16th-century Britain. Here are superb annotated and facsimile editions of Shakespeare's plays, illustrated histories of the city and kingdom he knew, and documentaries on DVD that reveal the true depth of the Bard and his works.
