Shakespeare's Letters brings fascinating insight to a topic of unexpected depth...Shakespeare's Letters is a deeply contextualized literary study, with plays discussed in intimate connection with their sources... * John Ridpath, Times Literary Supplement *
This book is a remarkable scholarly achievement, deeply learned, written in characteristically erudite, fluent pros * English *
I can think of only a handful of books that utterly transform the way I read the plays; Alan Stewart's Shakespeare's Letters is one of them. The scholarship, critical insight, and command of social history are dazzling. * James Shapiro, author of 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare *
I was astonished by the rich critical insights on both points of detail and in overall readings of individual plays yielded by Alan Stewart's immensely well-informed and critically acute study of Shakespeare within the context of the letter-writing traditions and conventions of his time. This brilliant and highly enjoyable work of original scholarship resoundingly demonstrates the value of paying close attention to the details of what Shakespeare actually wrote. * Professor Stanley Wells, Chairman of The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust *
