A lavishly illustrated book details the history of the original Globe Theatre on the bank of the Thames River in London

A lavishly illustrated book details the history of the original Globe Theatre on the bank of the Thames River in London. More authoritative and illuminating than Aliki's recent William Shakespeare and the Globe, this factual, focused and lively history is illustrated with 17 years' worth of paintings and drawings rendered by Everett, the "Artist of the Record" for the recent renovation of the Globe Theatre. Langley, a historian, describes the three GlobesAthe first, built in 1599 but burned to the ground in 1613; the second, which survived only until 1644; and the third, which opened in 1997 thanks to the visionary efforts of Sam Wanamaker.

In the 8th century Britain was invaded by the Vikings, who came from Scandinavia. They settled in the North and West of Scotland and in some regions of Ireland.

The conflict between the monarchy and Parliament led to the Civil Wars, which ended with the victory of Parliament.

This book reconsiders the Celtic Revival by examining appropriations of Shakespeare, using close .

This book reconsiders the Celtic Revival by examining appropriations of Shakespeare, using close readings of works by Arnold, Dowden, Yeats and Joyce to reveal the pernicious manner in which the discourse of Anglo-Irish cultural politics informed the critical paradigms that mediated the reading of Shakespeare in Ireland for a generation. Margaretta D'Arcy and John Arden's six part cycle, The Non-Stop Connolly Show (1975), is probably the most ambitious attempt in English to dramatize working-class and socialist history. However, productions have been remarkably few even in the ‘alternative’ theatre, so that the work has seldom been seen, even by its critics.
