Classmates of William Shakespeare is rightly called the largest humanist of the Renaissance. The creative legacy of the great playwright of all time includes 11 tragedies, 17 comedies, 10 histories, and poems. In the plays of the English writer reflected in different ages and Nations. His works had a huge influence on all European literature. One of the most enigmatic artists of the word set before mankind the question: "to be or not to be?" giving everyone the opportunity to find myself an answer.

A light Comedy from Shakespeare, not burdened with deep meaning. The simple storyline, which on close examination is not tenable, but if we take a certain amount of assumptions, and quite amusing. One day, one place had 2 sets of twins, absolutely to resemble each other, each pair gave the same name. The parents of one of the pair bought a second pair of twins in the service of his (Oh the times! Oh the customs!).

This play was written by Royal order wedding of Princess and being raised in the Palace, soon went into oblivion. It would seem that scandal: one of the greatest creations of genius, it can be said, the will was misunderstood by his contemporaries blunt, which some entertainment for the mind (here it is appropriate to say something trite like "there is no prophet in the Fatherland"). Fortunately, then the world was artists the pre-Raphaelites, who lifted the play to the skies (at the same time expelling from oblivion by William Blake). Everyone is happy and clapping.

Very, very unusual piece. Leaving aside duty for Shakespeare the conventions of the story (such as the naive motif of the three caskets, primitive casuistry of a Portion in the decision of the case of the pound of meat, etc.), and go straight to the things that touched my soul. First, it is the militant anti-Semitism. The attacks against Judaism and Jews are rude and full of anger. Surprisingly meet a hatred of Shakespeare. However, here there are nuances.

Back in 1602 was released that the second variant of this catastrophe, this time around about the manuscript of this creator. Quarto 1604 double the quantity of text. In spite of the fact that it's correct, the very first quarto includes its own worth, because it several details make it possible for to estimate about the way was that the drama on point. Ultimately when, right after Shakespeare's departure his good friends printed a group of his own comedies, tragedies along with chronicle, the so called folio 1623, there were also placed and "Hamlet".

It's thus usually is contested. Inquire, does Hamlet perhaps not to grief in the smallest collapse, is maybe not being wasted all of his ardor, perhaps not collapse strikes his purpose? Yes, but this since he wishes greater than they could do, and also guts as it has been wasted. Due to the oddest thing about the catastrophe of Hamlet isn't really far the offense of Claudius, nevertheless the simple fact that at Denmark at a quick period eventually become used to despotism and captivity, brute force along with dull obedience, meanness and cowardice.

So he had been spotted within his popular post "Hamlet and don Quixote" (1859), a decade earlier in the day, offering the contemporary incarnation of this ceaseless image at the narrative "Hamlet County". In English, Shakespeare research, in comparison, has created that a convention to find out at the instance of Hamlet the catastrophe of an ethical idealist, that originated in to the earth together with faith and faith, however reluctantly stunned with the passing of his daddy as well as adulterous mum.

The midst ages stopped. Feudal age, at which in fact the principal gains were regarded as loyal into this overlord and also valor has been substituted with a brand new phase of background. Enough timing has arrived for new thoughts, worth, and competitions. In the very first place has been that the soul of venture, skill to conform into some environment conduct a flourishing small business. Within this era that is tough the entire life and works of Shakespeare. The colorful playwright can barely stay aloof in the issues of the period.

In the XVII century the theatrical profession brought large income to become rich largely managed entrepreneurs. The sources allow us to know how many pounds was paid for a play by Shakespeare and colleagues and how much they can buy of sparrows and barrels of beer.

The authors of the late XVI - early XVII century, received the play from four to ten pounds. Average per play paid six pounds.

In this case, selling the play to the theatre, the author lost her all sorts of rights and was not able to publish independently.
