Beschreibung

One of the most important books on William Shakespeare, this superb biography is both authoritative and extremely readable. It is the first modern biography of Shakespeare since the Victorian Age to pay full attention to his life and times, to his works, and to the numerous and subtle connections among them. Peter Levi emphasizes the background of Shakespeare's life - the local and national events that shapes his experiences, his family and friends, and the Elizabethan people with whom he shared his life and populated his plays. Bringing together new work and new discoveries and reexamining the famous legends about Shakespeare, Levi uses the writings of modern historians to shed light on the poet's life. This valuable work will be the definitive life of Shakespeare for many years to come.
