This book has given me hope. First, William Shakespeare was a man. He was no golden literary god to be worshipped and held in awe from afar. He wrote for the common man of his day. He wrote clearly, succinctly, and plainly. Else, he would have lost his audience. People came and sat on the ground about the stage to hear his characters' words. Crowds don't do that to be bored stiff! Maybe my aversion to Shakespeare has been placed there by self-professed Shakespearean Academic Scholars? I'll find out by giving old Will another try thanks to this book. Read it yourself, perhaps you will too!
The elusive spirit of his actual life just wafts though this work like momentary steam out of a kettle.
There is no mention of the rumours that Shakespeare MAY not have written all those famous plays / nor of his perhaps also being an actor.
STILL - with so little known of the complexities of his life - this is an interesting glimpse.....
We can only wonder what happened to him during his 'missing years' which ended when he burst onto the scene. Great read.
