Subject: Hidden Shakespeare
A new biography of Shakespeare has just been published.
Nicholas Fogg, Hidden Shakespeare, published in the UK by Amberley Press.
Back in 1986 the author wrote a History of Stratford-upon-Avon, and he has published several other titles on the subject. The book reflect the extensive research he has carried out in the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s Library and Archive over the past 30 years, and is richly detailed. The author is a well-known speaker on both sides of the Atlantic. As well as the usual online resources, the book is available at the Shakespeare Bookshop in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The latest post on The Shakespeare blog is a review of the book, http://theshakespeareblog.com/2012/06/revealing-shakespeares-hidden-history/
[Editor’s Note: Sylvia Morris’s review of Hidden Shakespeare in informative and useful and I encourage those interested to read it. –Hardy]
