The life of William Shakespeare, Britain's greatest dramatist, was inextricably linked with the history of London.
Catherine Arnold creates a vivid portrait of Shakespeare and his London from the bard's own plays and contemporary sources, combining a novelist's eye for details with a historian's grasp of his unique contribution to the development of the English theatre. This is a portrait of Shakespeare, London, the man and the myth.
