Neil MacGregor. Publisher: Penguin UK , This specific ISBN edition is currently not available. View all copies of this ISBN edition:. Synopsis About this title The Elizabethan age was a tumultuous time, when long-cherished certainties were crumbling and life was exhilaratingly uncertain.
Review : MacGregor is not a man for making airy generalisations about the past. He examines concrete evidence and like a Sherlock Holmes teases out of it more information than you would think possible to deduce -- Peter Lewis Daily Mail Shakespeare's Restless World, filled with anecdotes and insights, eerie, funny, poignant and grotesque, is another brilliant vindication of MacGregor's understanding of physical objects to enter deep into our fore-fathers' mental and spiritual world -- Christopher Hart Sunday Times "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
