Reprint. Originally published: 2017.

Shakespeare's London 1613 offers for the first time a comprehensive 'biography' of this crucial year in English history.

The book examines political and cultural life in London, including the Jacobean court and the city, which together witnessed an exceptional outpouring of cultural experiences and transformative political events.

The royal family had to confront the sudden death of Prince Henry, heir apparent to the throne, which provoked unparalleled grief.

Meanwhile, an unprecedented number of plays performed at court helped move the country away from sadness to the happy occasion of Princess Elizabeth's marriage to a German prince.

Shakespeare's productions dominated London's cultural landscape, while other playwrights, writers and printers produced an extraordinary number of books.

Readers interested in literature, cultural history, and the royal family will find in this book a rich and accessible account of this monumental year. -- .
