The Women In Shakespeare's Life by Ivor Brown (£9.50)Publisher: The Bodley Head — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0370004639]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a tape repair to the head of the spine on the reverse. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Taken from an engraving by W. I. Colls after a portrait, by an unknown artist, of Mary Fytton.

From the cover: “This is not another book about the female characters in Shakespeare’s plays. The women in his own life are the subject. He was much away in London but as soon as he made money he bought ‘the Great House’ in Stratford and settled his wife and daughters in comfort. What were they like, these women at home? Mary, his mother, had her background of the prosperous Arden stock. His wife, Anne Hathaway, came from a poorer farm. The elder daughter, Susanna, kind and witty, married early and well. Her elusive sister Judith married late and not so well. Were they as ignorant as some have supposed?

Ivor Brown examines the status of women in Stratford and London. In the capital Shakespeare met ladies of great learning and high fashion, patrons of the poets. Women of all ranks were members of his play-house audience. The identity of his Dark Lady of the Sonnets has been constantly debated, and something has to be said of her. But she is only one of many, and the book begins and finishes in the countryside where his affections lay. If Stratford bored him he could have stayed with his colleagues in the London theatres, talking ‘shop’ amid the excitements of the town. But he came back to his home, his wife and his daughters.”
