A fascinating study of the disputes regarding Shakespeare's authorship of his plays. Very enjoyable, as well as being learned and informative. The reader is also quite good.
The best book I've read on the origin of this too, too trying canard. It points a dagger at the heart of this awful lible and shoves it in. The narrator brings a the proper tone to the procedings.
At least in Greenblatt's book there is some research of the period. Though both books provide nothing new on the man himself. As per usual of every "Shakespeare" biography its conjecture, supposition and what possibly may have sort of kinda happened. Real documented facts is scholarship. This book should be in historical fiction.
