Tely sensitive and talented boy surrounded by the rich tapestry of Elizabethan life could have become the world's greatest playwright A Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award Finali. I think the theory of Shakespeare that he's espousing is a little far fetched I'm just going to put it out there The way he gets from argument to argument is 'well this probably didn't happen but what if it did then this would be true' and then he'll go on to spout some historical facts that would then fall into place of that was true So as an academic argument I don't find this book particularly strongHowever There is a lot of information here about the life of Shakespeare presented in a readable enjoyable intriguing format I am in favor of anything that gets people reading Shakespeare I got through it in a week very easily Logical flaws aside it does make for interesting reading Even if it doesn't convince you of the truth I really enjoyed going through it It helped me to formulate some of my own ideas about the effect of Shakespeare's life on his writings There are a few minor ideas presented that I found intriguing as well If you like 'what if' books historical fiction or you're into shakespeare this book is for you

I never thought this would happen to me but while I was reading this book I actually had a sense of nostalgia for Harold Bloom A woman I work with forced this book on me with the guarantee that I would adore it I later found out that she hates music like the Velvet Underground It's always people like that who are forcing book recommendations Not that there are people like that who hate the Velvet Underground I have a lot of faith that she is an isolated caseThis book pretty much hit on every single thing I ever hate about books I know other people have said the writing was engaging but I have to disagree One sentence was just a list of the types of businesses that existed in London in the late 16th century The businesses were grouped together in a way that let the author use some semi colons and it seemed pretty clear to me that the whole purpose of the sentence was so that he could show he knew how to use semi colons If that is not the case and the editors had to put those semi colons in well god help us allI think this book should be classified as historical fiction because every sentence is about how maybe this happened or if then Shakespeare could have thought There is a whole chapter devoted to speculating about whether Shakespeare had a happy marriage based on the marriages in his plays That makes me so madHere's what I would read a book that compiles the documentary history related to Shakespeare and has a short explanation of what the document is I would be fine with that Speculation is so infuriatingI was dating this guy recently and he only used the word film for movie which drives me crazy And then one day he asked me if I wanted to go have a romp in the sack so I decided we should not go out any This is the book version of the phrase romp in the sackI am judging the soul of both this book and anyone who is passionate about it As to people who feel pretty neutral about it you are okay I will just assume the History of Elizabethan England class you took in college was only a survey
