Comments Ungentle Shakespeare: Scenes from his Life

  • Molly Zeigler

    I enjoyed this - been a while since I attempted any of the myriad bios. Nothing terribly new, but there are some interesting connections and suppositions and journeys down the rabbit hole. Duncan-Jones' attempt to remain serious in tone and unsentimental makes for a somewhat detached/academic feel that at times both serves and detracts from the overall narrative and reading experience. Easy to see the influence this work has had in the bio-realm (and the influence of other, earlier works on this [...]

    Blah. Duncan-Jones seems to know her material well enough certainly, though she writes with this stacatto, parrot-with-a-typewriter rythmn, which is quickly read but doesn't sink in all that much, or get penetrating with insights into the elusive, compelling Bard of Avon. The history gets more of a focus here, which is a good thing, but when I read a bio of Shakespeare (it's for a class, not my personal whim) I kind of want toI dunnoHEAR ABOUT SHAKESPEARE. This is of course totally different tha [...]

    In 400 years we seem to have reimagined Shakespeare in every possible light. Augustan sage, Romantic genius, trenchant nihilist, and in Katherine Duncan-Jones’ Ungentle Shakespeare, a nasty piece of work. Soon I shall declare him progenitor of the bongo drums. ('It’s been done', comes a bored cry from the gallery.)These fanciful speculations are unavoidable given the relative poverty of the biographical record, but that need not be a regrettable thing. Duncan Jones’ interpretation offers a [...]

    "Even though neither the library's founder, Sir Thomas Bodley, nor its first Librarian, Thomas James, were at all well disposed towards such light literature as play-books, the agreement ensured that a mint copy of the 1623 Folio6 was promptly delivered, being sent by the Librarian to an Oxford book-binder, William Wildgoose, in February 1624. Once returned, the book was chained to a shelf in the part of Duke Humfrey's Library known as Arts End by means of a clip through its front cover. Young m [...]

    This book gives context to Shakespeare’s plays and poetry in history and in Shakespeare’s life’s events. It’s probably a good book for something like me who wants to understand the basics, in detail, about Shakespeare’s life. Katherine Duncan-Jones has certainly done her homework here. She juxtaposes him with his family, his contemporary friends and rivals, his sponsors, the politics of court, his financial and legal woes, his faults and indulgences, and scours his works, his co-writer [...]

  • Mark

    This is an excellent, detailed, well-argued view of Shakespeare's life. While there's not the connective narrative to get a full view, Duncan-Jones gets into hyper-focused detail on many aspects and events. This wouldn't be a great primer on his life for someone who has no knowledge of the basic biography, but is an excellent second step. It's fascinating, well written, and something I'll go back to again and again.

    Don't buy a number of things -- and it is not just idolatry.
