In Indecent Hours, Stephen Greenblatt offers a radical new interpretation of the English Renaissance, arguing that it was not a time of unalloyed progress and enlightenment, but rather a period of profound social and cultural upheaval.

At the heart of this upheaval was William Shakespeare, a man who Greenblatt argues was not simply a product of his time, but a driving force in the creation of the modern world.

Shakespeare's plays, Greenblatt argues, were not simply reflections of the Elizabethan world, but rather active agents in the creation of a new kind of society.

Through his plays, Shakespeare explored the darkest recesses of the human psyche, exposing the violence, greed, and ambition that lurked beneath the surface of polite society.

But Shakespeare also offered a vision of a better world, a world in which reason, justice, and compassion prevailed.

In Indecent Hours, Greenblatt argues that Shakespeare's work was a powerful force for change, helping to create the conditions for the emergence of the modern world.

Greenblatt's book is a major contribution to our understanding of Shakespeare and the English Renaissance. It is a work of stunning scholarship and insight that will challenge and provoke readers for years to come.
