Per saperne di più
A provocative and perceptive work that reclaims the life of Shakespeare's often maligned wife--Ann Hathaway--from generations of scholarly neglect and misogyny, "Shakespeare's Wife" poses bold new questions and opens new fields of investigation and research.

Indice e argomenti trattati
Introduction considering the poor reputation of wives generally, in particular the wives of literary men, and the traditional disparagement of the wife of the Man of the Millennium1
Chapter One introducing the extensive and reputable family of Hathaway alias Gardner of Shottery together with the curious fact that one of their kinsmen was a successful playwright for the Admiral's Men11
Chapter Two introducing the Shakespeare family, with particular attention to the Bard's mother and her role in the oft-told story of the downfall of John Shakespeare26
Chapter Three of Ann Hathaway's looks and demeanour, of age at marriage in the 1580's, the courtship of older women by younger men and whether Shakespeare's wife could read42
Chapter Four of what is likely to happen when a town boy with nothing to his name beyond a way with words woos a serious young woman of good prospects58
Chapter Five of the making of a match, of impediments to marriage and how to overcome them, of bonds and special licences and pregnancy as a way of forcing the issue, of bastards and bastardy, and the girl who got away71
Chapter Six of handfasts, troth plights and bundling, of rings, gauds and conceits, and what was likely to happen on the big day87
Chapter Seven considering how and where the Bard and his Bride set up house, of cottages and cottaging, and of how they understood their obligations to each other103
Chapter Eight of pregnancy, travail and childbirth, of christening and church*, and the society of women121
Chapter Nine pondering how and when it was that young Shakespeare quit Strayford, leaving wife and children to fend for themselves, and whether he dared risk his health and theirs by consorting with prostitutes138
Chapter Ten suggesting that, having sent her boy husband to seek his fortune, with three small children to look after, Ann Shakespeare found work she could do indoors, and with the help of her haberdasher brother-in-law might even have prospered158
Chapter Eleven of how one Stratford boy became a leading printer, and another wrote a sexy poem that became a notorious best-seller, being literally read to pieces, and Ann buried her only son185
Chapter Twelve treating of the curious circumstances of the grant of arms made to William Shakespeare, and the acquisition of a compromised title to a rambling and ruinous house in a town he spent little or no time in201
Chapter Thirteen of hunger and disorder, introducing the villain of the piece, Sir Edward Greville, who contrived the foul murder of the Bailiff of Stratford, and Ann's friend and ally the young lawyer Thomas Greene222
Chapter Fourteen of Susanna and her match with a gentleman of London and a midsummer wedding at last237
Chapter Fifteen of Ann 's reading of the sonnets252
Chapter Sixteen of the poet's younger daughter Judith and the Quiney family, of Ann as maltster and money-lender, and the deaths of Mary and Edmund Shakespeare268
Chapter Seventeen in which Shakespeare returns to the town some say he never left and lives the life of an Anglican gentleman while Ann continues to live the life of a puritan townswoman278
Chapter Eighteen of Shakespeare's last illness and death and how Ann Shakespeare handled the situation294
Chapter Nineteen of Shakespeare's lop-sided will and Ann's options dower right, widow-bed or destitute dependency314
Chapter Twenty of burials, and monuments, widows' mites and widows' work, and the quiet death of the quiet woman of Stratford326
Chapter Twenty-One in which the intrepid author makes the absurd suggestion that Ann Shakespeare could have been involved in the First Folio project, that she might have contributed not only papers but also money to indemnify the publishers against loss and enable them to sell a book that was very expensive to produce at a price that young gentlemen could pay344
