“All the world’s a stage, And All the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their enterances; And one man in his time plays many parts." As You Like It, II, 7

The words of William Shakespeare permeate the lives of English speakers around the world. Did you know he is credited with some 2000 words and expressions, such as, “good riddance” and “wild-goose chase”? But what of the man behind the words?! Aliki presents the story of Shakespeare (and the Globe) in a series of five acts. From Will’s birth until the Puritan’s closings of all the theatres in London to the rebirth of the Globe in the 20th century, readers can learn known facts about the life of the famous playwright, actor, poet, and gentleman. Aliki explains that Shakespeare’s life is somewhat of a mystery, and readers will enjoy discovering the tidbits of facts that do exist. Particularly enjoyable are the illustrations, sidebars, captions, and quotes. The book’s format lends itself to exploration and further studies of the life and world of Shakespeare.
