Shakespeare: The King's Man
Available on Prime Video
Shakespeare's life and work are sometimes romanticized as a product of the golden age of Elizabeth I, the Elizabethan Era. But the Bard produced some of his finest plays after the Virgin Queen's death. In this illuminating BBC series, American scholar James Shapiro looks at the plays Shakespeare wrote during the turbulent reign of her successor King James I and shows how he responded to the times.
