Shakespeare The Biography by Peter Ackroyd

Peter Ackroyd's method is to position Shakespeare in the close context of his world. In this way, Ackroyd not only richly conjures up the texture of Shakespeare's life, but also imparts an amazing amount of vivid, interesting material about place, period and background. The book is packed with gems – and the reader turns the pages eagerly, keen to absorb the next nugget of information. In a magnificent feat of re-creating sixteenth-century London and Stratford, the bestselling biographer and novelist brings William Shakespeare to life in the manner of a contemporary rather than a biographer. Following his magisterial and ingenious re-creations of the lives of Chaucer, Dickens, T.S. Eliot, William Blake, and Sir Thomas More, Ackroyd delivers his crowning achievement with this definitive and imagination biographical masterpiece. Perhaps the greatest ever biography of Shakespeare, a masterpiece.
