An amusing and accessible short biography of William Shakespeare written by best-selling author, Bill Bryson. Recommended as an easy starting point for anyone wanting to know the facts about the life of the Bard.

Examining centuries of myths, half-truths and downright lies, Bill Bryson attempts to make sense of the man behind the plays. As he leads us through the crowded streets of Elizabethan England, he brings to life the places and characters that inspired Shakespeare’s work. Along the way he delights in the inventiveness of Shakespeare’s language, which has given us so many of the indispensable words and phrases we use today, and celebrates the Bard’s legacy to our literature, culture and history.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
