Shakespeare's plays still enthral us four centuries after they were written, but what fed his imagination? Beautifully illustrated with more than 200 paintings, sculptures, artefacts and documents, this catalogue of a joint British Museum-Royal Shakespeare Company exhibition explores the London of 1612, the Gunpowder Plot, English views of Venice, of Moors and of Jews, and the 'brave new world' beyond the Atlantic, bringing to life not just the texture of Shakespeare's times, but the ideas that were in the air.
