This was a very interesting work done by the author in his quest to find the where about of a certain play and sonnet writer, the great William Shakespeare. So much research had to be done in this information gathering and being that it was pre computer age it had to have been a daunting task. I learned a few things reading this, it was not always merry, in merry ole England at the time Shakespeare lived. It was “war” and not on the world stage but the theater stage. Rival theaters going at each other, lots of what we call today “mudslinging” being done by the different houses. So where was Shakespeare, doing his best to mingle with the important people, taking inspiration for his work from conversations held by the fireside with cronies at a favorite pub, more or less. It never dawned on me that the discourse in one of his plays was the actual way people talked back in the day. Of course, I should have known. I think the best piece of information gleaned from this gem is that the author made note of Shakespeare starting out writing comedy, then tragedy and ending up somewhere in the middle. This would be an especially fine read for someone that dotes on Shakespeare and his age and can't get enough of him.

Much respected and for good reason. Speculation on this period is just that and could only be so. But Acheson's guesses inspired others.

A little careless sometimes -one glaring case of mistaken identity but on the whole convincing theories . Worthwhile read altogether
