In Susan Cooper s King of Shadows 20th century Shakespearean actor Nat Field s sojourn in historical 16th century London as an apprentice and under none other than William Shakespeare s tutelage at that and in the at that time newly constructed Globe Theatre having been mysteriously transported back in time from the 20th century well actually having been made to switch places with a 16th century apprentice of the same name ill with the bubonic plague is for all intents and purposes an engaging fun and delightfully informative romp Author Susan Cooper absolutely knows her history and 16th century London remarkably and magically comes alive under her pen from the sights the sounds even the smells of the city to how the Globe as a theatre works how it is run and managed And indeed having Nat speak in an Appalachian drawl read dialect is really and truly an ingenious narrative device and tool considering that many linguists now surmise that standard Elizabethan English would have sounded rather similar to the dialects and parlances of Appalachia and this factoid of course and naturally smoothes out potential problems of communication and comprehension as Nat Field due to his background due to his hailing from Appalachian Tennessee is able to for the most part easily communicate in 16th century London whereas a standard modern American vernacular would likely sound very strange and perhaps even incomprehensible to a 16th century Londoner and vice versaAlthough I personally simply enjoyed and continue to much appreciate King of Shadows as basically an entertaining time travel fantasy in and of itself and about one of my favourite playwrights there are nevertheless some rather heavy and potentially saddening issues and scenarios presented in Susan Copper s presented narrative Nat is not just a talented young American Shakespearean actor he is dealing with much sadness and trauma grief loss mental anguish both in the present and also later in the past as the warm and nurturing father figure he encounters in William Shakespeare is torn from him when he is and definitely against his wishes and desires simply transported back to the present time once the reasons for which he was catapulted into the past in the first place no longer exist Now as a child reader or perhaps precisely as a Middle Grade reader as I believe King of Shadows is suitable from age eleven or so onwards I would likely have simply taken and accepted the above mentioned reasons as to why Nat Field has to be switched with his namesake and Elizabethan counterpart Nathan Field as a basic and yes even logical given that because the historic Elizabethan Nathan Field is ill with the bubonic plague he might easily infect and likely kill William Shakespeare and thus destroy his literary legacy and fame However my adult self is a bit jaded cynical and fond of basic logistics And if Shakespeare catching the plague from Nathan Field would kill him and thus prevent him from penning many of his most famous plays then these plays should really by simple logic and deduction not even exist in the present day but they in fact do yet are deemed as threatened and in need of rescuing Also and finally I do kind of find it rather hard to completely believe that when the newly returned to the present Nat Field tells his story to his friends and fellow actors Gil and Rachel they not only IMMEDIATELY believe him but almost AUTOMATICALLY surmise the reasons as to why Nat was sent to the past in the first place to protect Shakespeare or rather his literary legacy For yes indeed and in my opinion it would feel a bit authentic and realistic for Gil and Rachel to originally have entertained some doubts to not have immediately captured and focused on the reasons for Nat s voyage to 16th century London All in all though Susan Cooper s King of Shadows is both a fun and solidly readable time travel adventure perfect for young Shakespeare and history enthusiasts and really anyone in the mood for a delightful and engaging escape from the present into the past into 16th century England London and its environs ILLICIT LOVER shadowed his young life So he is thrilled when he is chosen to join an American drama troupe traveling to London to perform A Midsummer N.
