Will in the World How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare characters Û eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB A young man from a small provincial town moves to London in the late 1580s and in a remarkably short time becomes the greatest playwright not of his age alone but of all time. If you re into stuff like this you can read the full reviewNature Abhors a Vacuum Will in the World How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare by Stephen GreenblattIs there a Shakespearean lover who does not know that there is precious little actual information about Shakespeare and as a result there are all these theories speculating about who he really was I ve read a few of them and I ve always considered these to be crap that show us about the enthusiast of the theory than they do about Shakespeare I have read many books about Shakespeare but none have provoked a mixed and reaction in me than Greenblatts There are some great weaknesses Read on As I was reading this what came into my mind was that celebrated statement I think by AL Rowse that he was prepared to stake his reputation on the claim that all the Dark Lady from the sonnets 127 154 was in fact Emilia Lanier Never mind that it s never been clear that Lanier was a dark lady let alone the Dark Lady or indeed whether or not there was a real Dark Lady at all in real life By Jove what if Shakespeare actually made the whole thing up What if Greenblatt wanted to give Rowse a run for his money when it comes to reinventing Shakespeare s life I m uite astonished that it found a publisher at all let alone that someone paid close to a million dollars to have it published I m not talking about being littered with spelling mistakes or grammatical errors the worst is the utter lack of scholarly accuracy eg Shakespeare hating Anne Hathaway Shakespeare s Anti Jewishness the meeting in Lancashire between Edmund Campion and the teenage Shakespeare Falstaff as being a tribute both to Robert Greene and to Shakespeare s own father the attempt at simplifying and normalizing the complex sexuality of Shakespeare etc If you re into Shakespeare read on
