Written to complement the Globe Theatre's production of "Twelfth Night", this thought provoking work takes the reader into the fascinating world of Alchemy and Cabala that underlies the Shakespeare play. The author shows not only how the play is based on a profound understanding of the biblical Genesis and Revelation but also of the mystery of initiation path that lies between. The story takes on another depth of meaning when we realise that the characters represent aspects of our own psyche and spirit as well as of society generally, and that the play is an allegory of a possible path to our own and humanity's future happiness. This is the fifth of Peter Dawkins' books on the Wisdom of Shakespeare. The series is devoted to showing the depth of wisdom and the extraordinary knowledge of the Mystery traditions contained in the Shakespeare plays. The books are written for all Shakespeare lovers, students of the Western wisdom traditions, and for actors and audience alike.
