An original and provocative study of the evolution of Shakespeare&146;s image, building on the success of Duncan-Jones&146; acclaimed biography of Shakespeare. Taking a broadly chronological approach, she investigates Shakespeare&146;s changing reputation, as a man, an actor and a poet, both from his own viewpoint and from that of his contemporaries. Many different categories of material are explored, including printed books, manuscripts, literary and non-literary sources. There are biographical elements, but it is not a biography. The change in public opinion in Shakespeare&146;s time is quite startling: Henry Chettle attacked him as an 'upstart Crow&146; in 1592, an attack from which Shakespeare sought to defend himself, and yet by the time of the First Folio in 1623 he had become the 'Sweet Swan of Avon!&146; and was fast becoming the national treasure he remains today.This engaging and fascinating study brings the politics and fashions of Shakespeare&146;s literary and theatrical world vividly to life
