Wynn Wheldon, The Spectator In Shakespeare's Common Prayers, Daniel Swift demonstrates the influence of the Book of Common Prayer on the Elizabethan stage, and renders a potentially arcane subject unexpectedly compelling.
Alison Shell, Times Literary Supplement Swift proves himself a perceptive, lyrical and engaging reader.
Jonathan Bate, The Spectator Compellingly original, beautifully written, judiciously argued, completely in command of both literary and historical sources, this is one of the best books on Shakespeare in recent years.
Rt Revd Richard Chartres, The Church Times [A] lively book... The seriousness with which Swift explores the significance of the debates surrounding the rites of birth, marriage and death in Elizabethan England is a welcome corrective to the work of so many modern scholars who find it difficult to inhabit the God-fearers mind.
James Shapiro, author of 1599 and Contested Will Groundbreaking, historically informed, elegantly written, and invaluable for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of Shakespeare and religion in Elizabethan England.
Beatrice Groves, Journal of Ecclesiastical History This is an engaging and accessible book which studies the importance of the Book of Common Prayer as a source for Shakespeare. ... Swift's prose is deft, poised and disarmingly ready to question its own methodology. ... does an excellent service in reinvigorating the Prayer Book as a critical subject for Shakespeare studies.
