9780099599111: Shakespeare (Vintage Lives)

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.

Review:

"Bright, racy...knowledgeable and humorous, alternately sensible and quirky." (Terry Eagleton)

"Anthony Burgess's wonderfully well-stocked mind and essentially wayward spirit are just right for summoning up an apparition of the Bard which is more convincing than most" (David Holloway Daily Telegraph)

"Animated by affection and an understanding of the creative imagination that only a creative writer can bring to bear" ( Atlantic)

"A smooth-flowing narrative, often enlivened by Anthony Burgess's Joycean appetite for linguistic fantasy" ( The Economist)

Book Description:

A delightful and uniquely imaginative tribute to the Bard, incorporating biography, theatrical history, and a vivid recreation of the Elizabethan age.
