Shakespeare the world as stage is the latest in the eminent lives series a series of biographies about famous people by famous authors with less than 200 pages of text this is a very brief overview of a very famous man however as bryson effectively demonstrates it does present everything we actually know about the life of shakespeare. As the typically wry bryson observes it is because we have so much of shakespeares work that we can appreciate how little we know of him as a personfaced with a wealth of text but a poverty of context scholars have focused obsessively on what they can know. Bill brysons voice both actual and literary shine through in this short work detailing what is known and knowable about william shakespeare because little is known about shakespeare this book has less of the amusing anecdotes that make books like in a sunburned country such a delight
