Everything you wanted to know about Shakespeare ...and more!,
By A Customer
This review is from: In Search of Shakespeare [DVD] (DVD)
Michael Wood has done it again - and with a subject that has, up until now, been the almost-exclusive property of luvvies and literary anoraks. I wondered whether I could learn anything more than the already 'exhaustive' life history details that we have all been taught. I could. I did. Michael Wood applies his highly-successful methodology to our greatest playwright and comes up with heaps of insights, clues and hard facts that just seem to have eluded most people. His real acheivement is to put everything together in one place and in correct chronological order, allowing the viewer to see Shakespeare in his time and place. I found it fascinating!
