This book surveys the most pervasive of Shakespeare's themes, among them love, war, illusion, statecraft, heroism, the supernatural, and the comic. In chapters devoted to each, Mr. Fallon explains how these patterns of meaning were viewed in Shakespeare's time, what history the poet draws upon in presenting them on the stage, and how he suggests them through his pageant of men and women engaged in the business of living.
