Publisher's Summary

The plays of William Shakespeare, and his famous lines, are part of the national consciousness. There may be few solid facts about Shakespeare the man, and yet not only do we want to know all about him - we feel, through his plays, we do. In this classic biography, Hesketh Pearson puts his skills as an actor and biography to lively use, looking at the man as much through his worth - the great plays and poems - as through the extant facts. Having heard this affectionate account, you will go back to the plays with more understanding and enjoyment.
