Shakespeare is usually set apart from his contemporaries, in kind no less than quality. This book, the long-awaited final volume in the Oxford History of English Literature, sees Elizabethan drama as drawn together by a shared need to deal with contradictory pressures from heterogeneous audiences, censorious authorities, profit driven managers, and authors looking for classic status and social esteem. Hunter follows the compromises and contradictions of the Elizabethan repertory, examining how Shakespeare and his fellow dramatists were able to move easily from vulgar realism to poetic transcendence.
For much of the century, London's greatest contemporary observer, Charles Dickens, obsessively walked its streets, recording its pleasures and vices, curiosities and cruelties. In his company, the author leads us through the markets, sewers, rivers, slums, cemeteries, gin palaces and chop-houses of the Victorian capital, revealing the city in all its variety, vibrancy, and squalor. From the cacophonous cries of street-sellers to the uncomfortable reality of travel by omnibus, from the many uses of a dead horse to the unimaginably grueling working lives of hawker children, no detail is too small, or too strange. No one who reads this book will view London in the same light again.
