A Young Man From A Small Provincial Town Moves To London In The Late S And, In A Remarkably Short Time, Becomes The Greatest Playwright Not Of His Age Alone But Of All Time How Is An Achievement Of This Magnitude To Be Explained How Did Shakespeare Become Shakespeare Stephen Greenblatt Brings Us Down To Earth To See, Hear, And Feel How An Acutely Sensitive And Talented Boy, Surrounded By The Rich Tapestry Of Elizabethan Life, Could Have Become The World S Greatest Playwright A Pulitzer Prize And National Book Award Finalist If Shakespeare wore shoes and we have reason to suppose he did he might have worn some like the ones in this picture I m paraphrasing, but not by much This is Greenblatt s own special brand of persiflage that drove Germaine Greer to write her excellent Shakespeare s Wife, so I guess this book was good for something read Greer instead On her way to responsible speculation about the character of Anne Hathaway, traditionally assumed to have been a millstone around her husband s neck on no evidence whatsoever except the unremarkable Greer explains why so does Bill Bryson bequest of his second best bed Greer creates a plausible phantom that might have been the poet or not and is a pleasure to contemplate.
This book could have been perhaps even should have been so much worse than it turned out Even stating the premise sends a shiver down my spine The premise is, How about we speculate on the life and loves of Shakespeare on the basis of the evidence we can find in his plays, poems and sonnets You can feel it can t you It is like the shiver you get from a wind blowing off snow.
If I d guessed the book was going to be about such speculations I would never have started it I mean, I would just as likely start a book called, At Last, the Real Shakespeare Uncovered.
But this turned out to be much better than it had a right to be Admittedly, once I started my expectations were pretty low and so maybe it is hardly surprising that my expectations were exceeded All the same, there were bits of this book that really were quite special and have made me think about Sha I studied a lot of Shakespeare in college I just like that guy No one else can explore such huge themes so concisely and so beautifully, and I think he s the real deal.
And he s hard to biographize, partly because we famously don t know a ton about him, but also I think partly because he was just something special Someone who wrote outside himself.
So, for example, in this terrific biography, Greenblatt points out that it s kinda weird that Shakespeare s son died and he appeared not to deal with it at all he was writing some of his funniest comedies at the time WTF, say people who would like there to be neat connections between things And the answer isn t I argue that there s a big mystery that you should write you

I think the theory of Shakespeare that he s espousing is a little far fetched I m just going to put it out there The way he gets from argument to argument is well, this probably didn t happen but what if it did then this would be true and then he ll go on to spout somehistorical facts that would then fall into place of that was true So, as an academic argument I don t find this book particularly strong.
