A Life of William Shakespeare

It has been said that poetic geniuses are unstable, unworldly and dead by thirty-six. If this generalisation has any truth, when William Shakespeare was a notable exception. He was a man of balance, able to combine his artistic sensibilities with sound business sense. A man of the world, he was well-acquainted with commerce and the royal court, and he lived into his fifties and saw his children married and grandchildren born. This little book gives some insight into the man behind the plays and an opportunity to place his work in context.
