Write 1 page (200-500 words) in which you compare/contrast Greenblatt’s and MacDonald’s approaches to writing Shakespeare’s biography. Do they have the same purpose? What audience is Greenblatt writing for? For whom is MacDonald writing? How does the intended audience influence the style of writing? What kind of footnotes and documentation does each use? We talked about new historicism. Can you find any clues that one of them is a new historicist? Can you find any clues that one of them is an old hisotricist? Do they reach different conclusions about any issues? Support with evidence from the texts.
