9780141023748: The Lodger: Shakespeare on Silver Street

The Lodger In 1612, Shakespeare gave evidence at the Court of Requests in Westminster - it is the only occasion his spoken words are recorded. The case seems routine - a dispute over an unpaid marriage-dowry - but it opens up an unexpected window into the dramatist's famously obscure life-story. This book focuses on this episode in Shakespeare's life. Full description

Review:

'A fresh and convincing perspective on this most perplexing of cold cases...Such a completely engrossing mixture of intelligent analysis and intuited possibility makes The Lodger not only the best kind of detective story, but one of the most rewarding books of the year.' -- Tim Martin, Daily Telegraph

'Nicholl has brought to life an aspect of Shakespeare's career that has been less exhaustively studied than most, and for that reason alone his book is worthy of praise. The detail is delicious. It is almost prodigal. The Lodger is a triumph of reconstruction. -- Peter Ackroyd, The Times

'Nicholl's latest work is a triumph and ranks among the finest books ever written about Shakespeare's life.' -- James Shapiro, Guardian

'The Lodger easily outboxed and outfoxed all other contenders in an exceptionally busy year for books about Shakespeare.' -- Jonathan Bate, Sunday Telegraph, Book of the Year

'The Lodger is rich with unexpected historical delights. This fascinating book takes tiny details of the lived lives and makes the whole scene swirl before us.' -- Daniel Swift, Financial Times
