In this vivid and meticlulous account of the first thirty years of Shakespeare's Life, Eric Sams controverts all orthodox editions, biographies and reference books. He reveals how, in conventional Shakespeare scholarship, the reality of the playwright's youth has been concealed within a web of elaborate literary theories which misrepresent his life and work, and reject, ignore, or misdate his early plays. Written with an acerbic wit, Sam's book will intrigue anyone who has ever wondered about the origins of the plays and the mind that created them.
