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.

In the case of Tolstoi and Dostoievski, their works are so bound up with their lives, with the personality of each author, that we cannot speak of the one without the other. Before studying them as artists, we must know what manner of men they are.
