Departmental Bulletin Paper シェイクスピアと農業(1) : エリザベス朝「農書」の系譜
Shakespeare and Agriculture (1) : A Genealogical Study of Elizabethan Husbandry Manuals

上村, 幸弘

Husbandry manuals were widely read among the people in Early Modern England. These not only offered guidelines for farming, but also the normative ethics for every social class. We will examine how these manuals, whose roots have been traced back to ancient Greek poets like Hesiod, were connected to, and/or represented in, Shakespeare’s plays and other contemporary writings in the Elizabethan era. In this paper, some husbandry manuals of the Greeks and Romans will be discussed mainly to establish agricultural ethics in classical times.
