Shakespeare

by Bill Bryson
£7.99   paperback  HarperCollins (2008)

Shakespeare by Bill Bryson World-famous writer Bill Bryson brings us this brilliantly readable biography of our greatest dramatist and poet, William Shakespeare.
 
Examining centuries of myths, half-truths and downright lies, Bill Bryson tries to make sense of the man behind the masterpieces. In a journey through the streets of Shakespeare's time, he brings to life the hubbub of Elizabethan England and a host of characters along the way. Bryson celebrates the glory of Shakespeare's language - his ceaselss inventiveness gave us hundreds of now indispensable phrases, images and words - and delights in details of his fall-outs and folios, poetry and plays.
 
Stitching together information from a vast array of sources, he has created a unique celebration of one of the most significant, and least understood, figures in history - not to mention a classic piece of Bryson.
