Shakespeare : A Life: A Life

Forsideomslag
Clarendon Press, 29. okt. 1998 - 480 sider
In the most complete, accurate, and up-to-date narrative of Shakespeare's life ever written, Park Honan uses a wealth of fresh information to dramatically alter our perceptions of the actor, poet, and playwright. The young poet's relationships, his early courtship of Anne Hathaway, their marriage, his attitudes to women such as Jennet Davenant, Marie Mountjoy, and his own daughters, are seen in a new light, illuminating Shakespeare's needs, habits, passions and concerns. Park Honan examines the world of the playing companies -- the power of patronage, theatrical conditions, and personal rivalries -- to reveal the relationship between the man and the writing, and using previously unpublished material explores the causes of Shakespeare's success; Stratford childhood, his parents' capabilities, and his preparations for a London career. Shakespeare: A Life casts new light on the complexity and fascination of Shakespeare's life and his extraordinary development as an artist.

I love biographies. I did not like this one much. At times written as tedious and difficult as some of the subjects's plays in original text. It is interesting how little is really known about Shakespeare in his life. The author spends much more time on the plays then the life in my view. Læs hele anmeldelsen
