Shakespeare: The World As Stage

Shakespeare: The World as Stage - Bill Bryson

Scrumptiously entertaining and educational, Bill Bryson has the knack for making the seemingly most inane fact and historical account read like a tiny treasure. Put Shakespeare and Bryson together and the result is just FUN. In particular, the tongue-in-cheek last chapter in which Bryson addresses the question of Shakespeare's authorship is downright hilarious, if you like that sort of thing.

 

Highly recommended.
