This new biography looks beyond the established facts of Shakespeare's life and traces how the events of his era affected the way he lived, thought and wrote. Shakespeare emerged as a survivor, never completely alienating either his political masters or his audience. Discussion of the plays, poems and sonnets is interwoven with relevant moments in both Shakespeare's life and his age: the financial ruin of his father; his marriage to an older woman; the ravages of the plague on both his family and theatre audiences; the pressure of royal patronage; the Essex rebellion and the final family disgrace just before his death.
