Selected by Indie Booksellers for the September 2008 Indie Notables
“This is a highly personal, beautifully written, insightful glimpse into the character that has perhaps had the greatest impact on historical and contemporary literature. Rush captures what one imagines Shakespeare's candid voice might have sounded like -- witty, profound, lyrical, and full of wordplay -- and immerses us in the politics as well as the prose that influenced and inspired the playwright. Throughout, it is the voice of Will himself that resonates.”
— Kelly Wells, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT


Description
March 1616: William Shakespeare is dying, with his lawyer at his bedside. It is time to dictate his will. But how can a man put his affairs in order before he's come to terms with his past? Acclaimed poet, novelist, and Shakespeare professor Christopher Rush has created an utterly irresistible figure whose voice rings true across 400 years?irrepressible, bawdy, witty, and wise, his every word steeped in the situations and phrases of his own plays.
