Customer Review

on 19 June 2013
The premise of this is interesting and suggests that Shakespeare was a more visible and substantial figure in late sixteenth and early seventeenth century theatrical London. The author plots Shakespeare's plays and matches them to the actors in the companies suggesting who would have been Shakespeare's ideal candidate and also which parts he reserved for himself. It also suggests the route he might have taken as a would be aspiring actor from Stratford through a long apprenticeship to eventually becoming one of the owners of The Globe. It starts optimistically and although there is substantial knowledge displayed (the author is an actor himself) it is a very personal interpretation. Eventually I felt that so much was conjecture that could not be substantiated.
