Shakespeare’s Wife by Germaine Greer
Little is known about the wife of William Shakespeare. In his plays Shakespeare presents the finding of a worthy wife as a triumphant conclusion, and yet many scholars believe that he resented his own wife. Germaine Greer presents the story of their marriage in its social context as well as new insights about the life of the farmer's daughter who married our greatest poet. This is a daring, thought-provoking book that asks new questions, opens new fields of research, and rights the wrongs done to Anne Shakespeare.
