Shakespearean actor Nat Field s sojourn in historical 16th century London as an apprentice and under none Bald Eagle (Zeuss Pack 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 apprenticef 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 The Lady Elizabeth (Elizabeth I, 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 parlancesf Appalachia and this factoid Wolfsong of course and naturally smoothesut potential problems f 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 f Shadows as basically an entertaining time travel fantasy in and Pelnrušķis un trollis of itself and aboutne Far Strike (The Transcended Book 3) 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 timence the reasons for which he was catapulted into the past in the first place no longer exist Now as a child reader O Mistério do Infante Santo or perhaps precisely as a Middle Grade reader as I believe Kingf Shadows is suitable from age eleven Disgrace (Department Q, or sonwards 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
