Availability: Out Of Stock

One of the most recent releases in the Dead Famous series, this text gives the reader a surprisingly accurate and concise summary of most aspects of the great playwrights life, including his childhood, education, marriage and the various theories about the seven lost years. The cartoon-style illustrations and maps are amusing and echo the often vulgar humour in Shakespeares own writing, as well as providing clear insights into the society and times in which the Bard lived. The summaries of Shakespeares best-known plays are humorous in their phrasing but true to the various plots, if somewhat over-simplified. An outline is provided of the ongoing academic argument about Shakespeares identity and provides profiles of the most popular suspects. Short lists of some of the many words and phrases that originated in the plays and have since been absorbed into the English language are also included. This is good fun to read and a great way to introduce readers to the world in which this great writer developed his skills A Horrible look at the brilliant Bard, with chuckles on every page. Youve probably heard of William Shakespeare. He is dead famous for: writing a few plays, having a bit of a way with words, and creating characters like romantic Romeo and murderous Macbeth. But did you know that our Will did a seven-year vanishing act, nearly had his head chopped off by the Queen, and nicked an entire theatre? Yes even though hes dead, Shakeys still full of drama!
