A Wonderful Summary Of Shakespeare's Life And Works!
The beloved plays of Shakespeare are still produced everywhere, yet the life of the world's most famous playwright remains largely a mystery. Young Will left the town of Stratford to pursue theater in London, where his work eventually thrived and made him a famous and wealthy man. With black-and-white illustrations that include a diagram of the famous Globe theater, Celeste Davidson Mannis puts together the pieces of Shakespeare's life and work for young readers.
Even though this book is written for elementary level students, it is a wonderful, easy-to-read summary of important information about William Shakespeare and his works, that older students can read independently, easily understand, and quickly retain as background information to apply when reading works by Shakespeare.
