What Was Shakespeare Really Like? by Stanley Wells (signed by the author)
Sir Stanley Wells is one of the world's greatest authorities on William Shakespeare. In this new book he brings a lifetime of learning and reflection to bear on some of the most tantalising questions about the poet and dramatist that there are. How did he think and feel? What were his relationships like? What did he believe about death? What made him laugh? Freshly thought and immensely engaging, this concise study wrestles with the fundamental debates concerning Shakespeare's personality and life that have fascinated readers for centuries - the mysteries of how Shakespeare lived, whom and how he loved, how he worked, and how he produced some of the greatest and most abidingly popular works in the history of literature and drama.
With a foreword by Stephen Fry.
