Will's Will : The Last Wishes of William Shakespeare, Hardback

Will's Will : The Last Wishes of William Shakespeare Hardback

Description

The original will - one of the National Archives' most prized treasures - is reproduced in full, with a transcript for modern readers.

Individual phrases are probed with a light, entertaining touch to reveal what we can piece together about Shakespeare the writer and the man - his friends and family, his lovers, the places where he lived, his beliefs, his growing wealth and, of course, the theatres where he made his name.

The result is a fascinating, freewheeling journey into a life (and death) with tantalizingly few facts and room for intriguing conjecture.
