Shakespeare

The Biography

Peter Ackroyd's marvellous biography is a living attempt to reach into the heart of Shakespeare. He creates an intimate and immediate connection with his subject, so that the book reads like the work of a contemporary - meeting Shakespeare afresh on his own ground. Written with intuition and imagination unique to Peter Ackroyd, this is a book by a writer about a writer, and a fascinating and detailed depiction of the world Shakespeare inhabited.
Rezension
"This is a commendably thorough, engagingly self-effacing new look at a writer whom literary history has never quite managed to pin down, nor ever will. It is the book Peter Ackroyd was born to write" Anthony Holden Daily Mail
Portrait
Peter Ackroyd was born in London in 1949. He achieved a Double First at Cambridge and studied in America at Yale as a Mellon Fellow. His first two publications were books of poetry; his first biography was about Ezra Pound and his first novel was about Oscar Wilde. He is a successful novelist (taking most of his backgrounds from history) and has written biographies of T. S. Eliot, Dickens, Blake and Thomas More, as well as short books on Chaucer and Turner. He has written and presented three TV series for the BBC (Dickens, London and the Romantic Poets) and is the author of London: the biography and Albion: the origins of the English Imagination. He has been awarded a CBE for services to Literature, and lives in London. Peter Ackroyd has won the Whitbread Biography Award. His other prizes include: the Royal Society of Literature's William Heinemann Award (jointly), the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, the Somerset Maugham Award and the Guardian fiction prize.
