Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bases to My Understanding of Shakespeare Back Story: I have been studying drama for a little over a decade now. I read this book during the beginning for my career and BEFORE I began to properly read Shakespeare's work. This helped me greatly because it gave me a foundation of knowledge that I could use in the understanding of his texts in regards to the time period. Every knows who Shakespeare is even if you have never read his work. This book is oozing with his time era, but it refreshingly does not focus on the famous playwright and instead explores the world of the protagonists. What is really nice about this novel is that it helps the reader to understand that specific point in time in great detail. It looks at things such as how actors worked, how young men often played the women's roles (high pitched voices), and the fear that comes with being a women who wants to be something more than what her role requires of her. I remember loving this book and it has obviously left a lasting impression on me seeing as how I am buying it now so I can have my own copy and will be reading it again soon. Maybe I will do an updated review then, but for now, trust in that this is an amazing book and a piece of literary history (as described in the description above). Please check it out and make other people aware of this fantastic novel so that it does not get lost in time like many works eventually do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read it a long time ago but it always stuck with me I read this book almost ten years ago and for the past year I had been trying to remember the title because the book always stuck with me and every time I head Shakespeare I thought of this story. Definitely a great read when I was in high school
