Pearce digs into plays first performed during England’s persecution of Catholics . . .

pearceThrough Shakespeare’s Eyes
Ignatius Press, 2010. 225 pages. $19.95 hardcover.

Fulfilling the promise he made in his previous book, The Quest for Shakespeare, Pearce analyzes three of Shakespeare’s plays in order to uncover the Bard’s Catholic beliefs. Here the author digs into the plays, which were written and first performed during the English crown’s persecution of Catholics. English history and literature were taught for generations through the prism of English Protestantism. Though the case for Shakespeare’s Catholicism has been studied before, Pearce analyzes the Bard’s genius in a fresh and unique way.
