Bart Van Es's lucid and comprehensive book is in a more recent and surely more realistic counter-tradition which sees Shakespeare as pre-eminently involved: a poet at work in the daily professional context of a busy and successful theatre company. * Charles Nicholl, The Times Literary Supplement *
Shakespeare in Company is a meticulous account of the institutional and economic forces that shaped the plays themselves and an acute analysis of the ways in which this shaping occurred ... This is a sensitive, erudite and intriguing study that demonstrates the inseparability of the rarefied perfections of Shakespeare's art and the day-to-day business of the entertainment industry. * Peter J. Smith, Times Higher Education *
Highly recommended * F. L. Den, Choice *
[An] absorbing study * The New Criterion *
van Es shows that Hamlet's claim to an inner reality that lies beyond the reach of 'outward show' is made plausible to the audience through a mastery of linguistic register ... [this book offers] new and helpful ways of thinking about the most familiar works. * Michael Neill, London Review of Books *
