Summary
"Every generation reinvents Shakespeare for its own needs, imagining through its particular choices/emphases the Shakespeare it values. Shakespeare himself was deeply involved in his own kind of historical reimagining. Examines his medieval sources and inspiration, and how they shaped his works. Analyze the ways our understanding of medieval life has been influenced by Shakespeare's plays"--Provided by publisher
