Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Soul of the Age: The Life, Mind and World of William Shakespeare (Paperback)
The book is build up according to the seven ages of life, infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice, panttaloon and oblivion.
It is not so much a biography of the author/actor Shakespeare but more a cutural outline of life as a commoner in Elizabethan/Jacobean England.
It takes a lot off liberties in the area of what happened in his life, but if you are not bothered by assumptions you get a nice insight..
