William Shakespeare: The Man Behind the Genius

William Shakespeare: The Man Behind the Genius

Anthony Holden
3.4/5 (18 ratings)
Shakespeare's life was as colorful, varied, and dramatic as his works: Taken out of school early, the teenage Shakespeare was sent under an alias to train illegally as a Catholic priest. After a shotgun wedding, an escape to Elizabeth I's London, and a stint as a mediocre actor, he was by the turn of the seventeenth century writing the plays that would make him immortal. When he retired, four years before his death from drink, his was the ultimate rags-to-riches story.
-- This revealing, very human portrait of Shakespeare will remain the standard study for years to come.
