"Riveting" Independent 20050618 "This compulsively readable and deeply imaginative book represents the most sympathetic investigation yet made into the ways in which Shakespeare's life experiences inform his writings" -- Stanley Wells "Greenblatt's book is full of longing, a love letter to a man we will never know. It's a wonderful piece of work" -- Simon Russell Beale "Thought-provoking...full of unexpected touches...beautifully written" -- Andrew Marr Daily Telegraph "Really gives one a sense of being in touch with the man.
