Cover ArtWill in the world : how Shakespeare became Shakespeare
by Greenblatt, Stephen, 1943-
Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Greenblatt creates a deep, breathtakingly vivid portrait of Shakespeare by analyzing his words and connecting them to the events of the day. This is not only an incredibly insightful biography, it is also a glimpse into the intense, complicated world of Elizabethan England, and and a magnificently accessible window into Shakespeare's plays.   posted Apr 22, 2014 at 6:26PM
