Shakespeare's Restless World. British Museum Director Neil MacGregor repearts the format used in his "History of the World in 100 Objects" by taking 20 diverse objects which reflect the era in which Shakespearte lived. As with his previous series, his presentation is rather dry and academic. External metadata update. The New York Times bestselling author of A History of the World in 100 Objects brings the world of Shakespeare and the Tudor era of Elizabeth I into focus. We feel we know Shakespeare's characters. Think of Hamlet, trapped in indecision, or Macbeth's merciless and ultimately self-destructive ambition, or the Machiavellian rise and short reign of Richard III. They are so vital, so alive and real that we can see aspects of ourselves in them. But their world was at once familiar and nothing like our own.

The book, Shakespeare's Restless World, illustrates the botched attempts to overlay or juxtapose the crosses of St Andrew and St George. As MacGregor writes, "you can see the intractable politics of union being played out in graphic form"
The book, Shakespeare's Restless World, illustrates the botched attempts to overlay or juxtapose the crosses of St Andrew and St George. As MacGregor writes, "you can see the intractable politics of union being played out in graphic form". The "one nation" beloved of so many politicians has always been easier to invoke than to achieve, or even to depict. Download the new Indpendent Premium app.
It's such a beautiful book recreating Shakespeare's world through examining twenty objects.
What was life like for Shakespeare's first audiences? In a time of political and religious unrest and economic expansion, how did Elizabethan play-goers make sense of their changing world? What did the plays mean to the public when they were first performed? In this fascinating series, Neil MacGregor attempts to answer these questions by examining 20 objects from that turbulent period. There are grand objects such as a communion chalice, a Venetian goblet, and Dr. Dee's mirror, as well as everyday items such as a theater-goer's fork and an apprentice's cap. From Drake's circumnavigation medal to an eye relic, he uses these objects to explore the issues that shaped Shakespeare's plays, and considers what they reveal about the concerns and beliefs of Shakespearean England. Speaking to scholars, historians, and experts, he discusses the topics raised—everything from exploration and discovery to violence, entertainment, and the plague.
