Description
This volume is a biography on English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. In this work, the author attempts to provide a vivid and plausible version of the undocumented areas of Shakespeare's life. The author intends to demonstrate how an acutely sensitive and talented boy -- surrounded by the rich tapestry of Elizabethan life, full of drama and pageantry, and also cruelty and danger -- could have become the world's greatest playwright. He brings together little-known historical facts and little-noticed elements of Shakespeare's plays and makes connections between Shakespeare's life and his works.
