Uniquely explores the life and works of the widely-regarded greatest writer of the English language. Through dispelling common myths (Could his father really not read or write? What really happened during 'the Lost Years'? Why did he retire from writing while only in his early 40s?) and revealing fascinating trivia, this book attempts to answer many of the often-disputed questions surrounding the life of the nation's favourite playwright. We learn about Shakespeare's family and childhood, and, with much reference to his most famous works, why his writing has endured the test of time and remains endlessly adaptable. Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use. The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings.  

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