Description
Information
Includes two 8-page sections of black-and-white photos, plus maps.

Intimacies with Marlowe, entanglements in London with the mysterious dark lady, the probably fathering of an illegitimate son -- the mysteries of Shakespeare's personal life have proven tantalisingly obscure. In 'Shakespeare Revealed', acclaimed authority, Rene Weis, brings the man and his milieu to the fore in a compelling reassessment.

Breaking with tradition, he reveals how the works themselves contain a rich seam of clues about Shakespeare's life, from his heretical dalliances with Catholicism to his grief at the death of his son Hamnet. If there is a code in his writing, Shakespeare always intended it to be broken.

This striking re-reading is consolidated by scrupulous archival research. Through reconstruction of records of the age, Rene Weis builds a colourful pictures of Shakespeare's daily life: the bustling market town of Stratford, the spellbinding forests of Warwickshire, the pell-mell of London's theatres. Above all he reanimates Shakespeare's social scene.
