William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of supposition arranged around scant facts. With his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself. Bryson documents the efforts of earlier scholars, and, emulating the style of his travelogues, records episodes in his own research. He celebrates Shakespeare as a writer of unimaginable talent and enormous inventiveness, a coiner of phrases ("vanish into thin air," "foregone conclusion," "one fell swoop") that even today have common currency. His Shakespeare is like no one else's--the beneficiary of Bryson's genial nature, his engaging skepticism, and an unrivaled gift for storytelling.--From publisher description.… (mere)

    Introducing Shakespeare af G. B. Harrison (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: Older and shorter, more scholarly but only slightly less witty, introduction. Mr Harrison's accounts of the Elizabethan playhouse and the development of Shakespeare's style are erudite and illuminating. Contains also revealing excerpts from Shakespearean criticism through the centuries (Dryden, Pope, Dr Jonhson, Coleridge). Excellent complement to Mr Bryson's book. Be sure to get (post-)1954 edition (the year of last revision, first published in 1939). Very little dated. Excellent bibliography of scholarly editions of original documents (Henslowe's Diary and Papers, the volumes edited by E. K. Chambers, Mr Harrison's own Elizabethan Journals, and others).… (mere)

Bryson kommer vidt omkring i denne "gransken" eller afmytologiceren af kunstneren William Shakespeare, eller Shakspere?
Mennesket WS derimod - og det anfører Bryson selv som den største udfordring - kommer vi ikke nærmere ind på livet. Desværre blandes alt det gode (benhårde facts: antal steder, barden har svunget sin signatur, de forskellige måder, hvorpå andre, men også Rystespyd himself staver navnet forskelligt, baggrundsviden om 15-16-tallets England (befolkning, erhverv, traditioner, teater etc), et rids over de samtidige Jonson, Oxford, Marlow, Bacon ...), med det afslutningsvist dårlige (Brysons eget forsøg på bevisførelse af egen teori).
Det gode er jo (vel?) at manden har ret - Det var William Shakespeare selv, der skrev de tekster, vi i dag kender som Shakespeare-klassikere. Det dårlige er så, at de såkaldte Anti-Stratfordister (o.a. typiske konspirationskryptotænkere) alligevel ikke får slukket deres bål af umulige og halsløse muligheder for at det "kunne" være Bacon, Ocford etc. der "måske" i virkeligheden skrev Hamlet, Stormen, Macbeth etc. Meget ærgerligt ikke at få den knage at hænge virehoderne op på. Og i stedet for at parkere fremtidige modbeviser helt ude i floden Avon, vil denne lille, letlæste bog, blot blive mødt med kyshånd af fremtidige tågegæt. Nå, men jeg er overbevist (men ikke qua denne bog) om at Shakespeare skrev Shakespeare skrev Shakespeare skrev Shakespeare. ( )

Before he came into a lot of money in 1839, Richard Plantagenet Temple Nugent Brydges Chandos Grenville, second Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, led a largely uneventful life.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
We don't know if [Shakespeare] ever left England. We don't know who his principal companions were or how he amused himself. His sexuality is an irreconcilable mystery. On only a handful of days in his life can we say with complete certainty where he was. . . . For the rest, he is a kind of literary equivalent of an electron—forever there and not there.
In fact it cannot be emphasized too strenuously that there is nothing—not a scrap, not a mote—that gives any certain insight into Shakespeare's feelings or beliefs as a private person. We can know only what came out of his work, never what went into it.
One variation [of bearbaiting] was to put a chimpanzee on the back of a horse and let the dogs go for both together. The sight of a screeching ape clinging for dear life to a bucking horse while dogs leaped at it from below was considered about as rich an amusement as public life could offer. That an audience that could be moved to tears one day by a performance of Doctor Faustus could return the next to the same space and be just as entertained by the frantic deaths of helpless animals may say as much about the age as any single statement could.
[I]t needs to be said that nearly all of the anti-Shakespeare sentiment—actually all of it, every bit—involves manipulative scholarship or sweeping misstatements of fact.
"In some ways the records are extremely good," Thomas told me. "Sheepskin is a marvellously durable medium, though it has to be treated with some care. Whereas ink soaks into the fibres on paper, on sheepskin it stays on the surface, rather like chalk on a blackboard, and so can be rubbed away comparatively easily. Sixteenth-century paper was of good quality ... It was made of rags and was virtually acid free, so it has lasted very well." ... Paper and parchment were expensive, so no space was wasted. There were no gaps between paragraphs - indeed, no paragraphs.
