The Fact or Fiction Behind Shakespeare Hardback
by Kay Barnham
Part of the Truth or Busted series
Truth or Busted's Shakespeare title explores popular myths and legends about the world's greatest playwright in a tongue-in-cheek, humorous way that kids will find unputdownable!
Alongside features such as 'The Bard's Best Bits' in which we learn that Shakespearean quotes and phrases are still part of our everyday language, Truth or Busted statements such as 'The Queen Loved Shakespeare's Bottom' or 'Shakespeare Burned Down the Globe Theatre' are explored.
We look at where the idea came from, whether it has any basis in truth, or whether they can be consigned to folklore.
Finally, each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation!
A must for anyone studying Shakespeare at school!
