The Private Life of William Shakespeare by Lena Cowen Orlin
The Private Life of William Shakespeare tells the story of Shakespeare's life in Stratford as a family man. Through close readings of the key documents associated with Shakespeare and re-evaluation of the evidence around biographical fables, the book explores his private life, his personal aspirations and the relationships with close friends and neighbours. The Shakespeare who emerges is a man who consciously and with purpose shaped his life and that of his family.
