From bestselling author Bill Bryson comes this compelling short biography of William Shakespeare, our greatest dramatist and poet.
Bill Bryson’s Shakespeare is the travel writer’s biography of England’s most renowned dramatist and poet - William Shakespeare. Bringing together information from a variety of sources and examining centuries of myths, half-truths and lies, Bryson tries to make sense of the man behind the masterpieces. In a journey through Elizabethan England, the world that Shakespeare knew and in which he created his ceaselessly inventive language, we meet afresh the phrases, images and words he coined which now form part of our everyday language, as well as delighting in details of the great man’s fall-outs, folios, poetry and plays.
