Defining craftsmanship far more broadly than "skilled manual labor," Richard Sennett maintains that the computer programmer, the doctor, the artist, and even the parent and citizen engage in a craftsman's work. Craftsmanship names the basic human impulse.

Why do people work hard, and take pride in what they do? This book, a philosophically-minded enquiry into practical activity of many different kinds past and present, is about what happens when people try to do a good job. It asks us to think about the true meaning of skill in the 'skills society' and argues that pure competition is a poor way to achieve quality work. Sennett suggests, instead, that there is a craftsman in every human being, which can sometimes be enormously motivating and inspiring - and can also in other circumstances make individuals obsessive and frustrated. The Craftsman shows how history has drawn fault-lines between craftsman and artist, maker and user, technique and expression, practice and theory, and that individuals' pride in their work, as well as modern society in general, suffers from these historical divisions. But the past lives of crafts and craftsmen show us ways of working (using tools, acquiring skills, thinking about materials) which provide rewarding alternative ways for people to utilise their talents. We need to recognise this if motivations are to be understood and lives made as fulfilling as possible.

Shakespeare The Craftsman Volume 5

Professor Bradbrook's Shakespeare the Craftsman was first given as the Clark Lectures in 1968 at Cambridge. Her purposes in the book that followed are twofold: to trace 'the descent of Shakespeare's art from the popular medieval tradition, especially from the religious drama of the Craft cycles'; and to indicate how his craftsmanship was often a response to some immediate demand - a new actor, a new stage or some specific occasion. The Merry Wives of Windsor, for instance, came of a Royal Command. There are chapters about Burbage and the Globe Theatre, and about Robert Armin, the 'new clown', and his part in Twelfth Night. Other chapters deal with Julius Caesar, Hamlet and the revenge play, and the pageant of Timon of Athens.
