This is a rambling, self-congradulatory, hero-worshipping book that doesn't give any useful big picture background but gets caught up with any amount of detail that fails to interest without the necessary background. However, it is, apparently, also the accepted chronology and what seems like the most likely historical grounding for the topical references in Shakespeare's works. So: sort of useful, but very much a chore. If there is a shorter and better work which does the same thing more memora...
Wonderfully easy and enjoyable biography on Shakespeare. Well worth reading for a glimpse into his life and times.
