    J. Alfred

    This is a rambling, self-congradulatory, hero-worshipping book that doesn't give any useful big picture background but gets caught up with any amount of detail that fails to interest without the necessary background. However, it is, apparently, also the accepted chronology and what seems like the most likely historical grounding for the topical references in Shakespeare's works. So: sort of useful, but very much a chore. If there is a shorter and better work which does the same thing more memora This is a rambling, self-congradulatory, hero-worshipping book that doesn't give any useful big picture background but gets caught up with any amount of detail that fails to interest without the necessary background. However, it is, apparently, also the accepted chronology and what seems like the most likely historical grounding for the topical references in Shakespeare's works. So: sort of useful, but very much a chore. If there is a shorter and better work which does the same thing more memorably, I'd like to know about it.

    I think that this book was good but I found it boring because I like fiction better than no-fiction. I was fun to learn about William Shakespeare, I think that his work is amazing and want to read Romeo and Juliet. The writing was a little difficult to read because of I couldn't understand some words. I would recommend this book to those of my classmates that like learning about people,but I wouldn't recommend this to people like me who only like reading fiction. If this book was a series, I don I think that this book was good but I found it boring because I like fiction better than no-fiction.
