Book Description

This book reveals the remarkable life of a Renaissance New Yorker sustained by the play Hamlet. Craven’s detective work finds for the first time Apostle Paul’s ethical principles integrated throughout the play. The insights that emerge from this discovery reverberate throughout American culture today, explaining dramatic shifts in values that have cascaded down the generations. These dynamics reflect Craven’s lineage: a fascinating mix of genial humanists, fiery ideologues, and effective, business-minded Yorkers traced back to Shakespeare’s London. Craven melds groundbreaking literary insight with reflection on his own life, a continuing search for and demonstration of executive power.
