Synopsis: Among Shakespeare's many biographers none brings to his subject more passion and feeling for the creative act than Anthony Burgess. He breathes life into Shakespeare the man and invigorates his times. His portrait of the age builds upon an almost personal tenderness for Shakespeare and his contemporaries (especially Ben Jonson), and on a profound sense of literary and theatrical history. Anthony Burgess's well-known delight in language infuses his own writing about Shakespeare's works. And in the verve of his biography he conveys the energy of the Elizabethan age.
About the Author: Anthony Burgess wrote over fifty books, including A Clockwork Orange, Earthly Powers, the Enderby novels, Byrne, and A Dead Man in Deptford (soon to be a major motion picture). He was a Visiting Fellow of Princeton University and a Distinguished Professor of City College, New York.
