The Playwrights as Magician: Shakespeare's Image of the Poet in the English Public Theater

by Alvin Kernan
 
During Shakespeare's lifetime the courtly tradition of poetry and patronage evolved into the characteristic modern situation in which a professional poet writes for a paying public. This revolutionary change in the social circumstances of art forced poets writing for the theater to redefine their conceptions of their own roles and of the function of their art.
