The Man Shakespeare and his Tragic Life Story
by

Publisher: Mitchell Kennerley
ISBN/ASIN: 1840225637
Number of pages: 452

Description:
A lively biography of England and arguably the world's greatest playwright and poet by an ardent admirer. Pursuing the thesis that a man so elusive in the few surviving documents is found full blown in very one of his works, Frank Harris, a successful journalist and editor, turns his hand to creating an impressionistic portrait that is at once a highly idiosyncratic exploration of the plays and a telling of the life through them.
