Bill Bryson - Shakespeare (2nd Hand Hardback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780007197897
Subtitled : Shakespeare: The World as a Stage (Eminent Lives).
Bill Bryson's bestselling biography of William Shakespeare takes the reader on an enthralling tour through Elizabethan England and the eccentricities of Shakespearean scholarship.
The most celebrated writer in the English language, he left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts.
With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colourful muddle to reveal the man himself. His Shakespeare is like no one else's - the beneficiary of Bryson's genial nature, his engaging scepticism, and a gift for storytelling unrivalled in our time.

"Once again Bill Bryson has produced a delightfully light-hearted and effortlessly informative read. Details or Shakespeare, the monarchy of his day, and the present puddle of corroborated details of his works are sewn together to paint a thoroughly descriptive portrait of all we still cannot know of the great bard. This book is an excellent introduction for those just getting to know the works of Shakespeare and an equally eye-opening delve into all the misinformation surrounding him that is sure to surprise even the biggest of fans." - Better Books Review.
"Thoroughly researched & an easy read. Much enjoyed the historical background . . ." - Google review.
