Summary
  • The appearance of plays as great as Shakespeare's remains something of a mystery. Emrys Jones argues that too little attention has been given to the great intellectual potentiality of of the earlier Tudor culture and to Shakespeare's unique capacity to put it to creative use. 'Erasmian' humanism, deliberately ambitious in the standards it set itself, created levels and kinds of literacy higher perhaps than any seen until then in the West. In England a new intellectualism fermented an already vigorous native endowment. The diverse and intensely literate culture that resulted helped to produce Shakespeare
  • The Origins of Shakespeare opens up a number of new approaches to its subject. It shows Shakespeare making a dramatic tradition out of the cultural promise of generation immediately preceding his own. It makes out a new case for crediting him with a knowledge of Greek tragedy. It argues that he remember the dying mystery play tradition, building his own tragedies on the passion plays. It demonstrated how richly involved are the Henry VI plays, Richard III, and King John in the cultural and political life of their time. Its implications will affect our conception of Shakespeare as a whole
