In 1985 Gary Taylor caused worldwide controversy with his discovery of the poem "Shall I Die?", which he attributed to Shakespeare. Here he re-assesses the greatness of England's literary and cultural icon, examining the ways in which each era re-invents Shakespeare to suit its own ends. In doing so, Taylor offers an irreverent account of the "Bard industry" through the ages and issues challenges to the principles of literary judgement.
