How to Find Out About Shakespeare serves as a guide to the study of the poetry and plays of William Shakespeare. This book provides information on Shakespeare's life, his work, and the society in which he lived. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of England in which Shakespeare lived to develop a sense of his times, the ideas, as well as the social and political tension of England. This text then discusses the events of his life as well as the doubts that have been cast on his very existence. Other chapters look at the theater in which he earned his living and won his fame. This book discusses as well the literary criticism of his work, followed by a selection of special subjects and themes as dealt with by Shakespeare. The final chapter explains the main bibliographical tools for the study of Shakespeare. This book is a valuable resource for teachers, students, and librarians.
