Welcome, fall reading! It’s been a while. And what better way to usher in the fall season than with a good book about a bibliophile and antiquarian bookseller, William Shakespeare, forgeries, and Victorian art? I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While it took a little while to get used to moving between three different periods in time, I became immersed in reading about book restoration, rare books, and all of the details and descriptions about books.
I also enjoyed reading another perspective about William Shakespeare, which brought up the age old question of whether Shakespeare was really Shakespeare… I found the highlights of that time period and different book collectors, booksellers, authors and artists also very interesting. It’s been a while since I’ve read about that time period in history and it has piqued my interest. I’ve now pulled another book off of my shelve which I have started reading – The Age of Shakespeare. I also want to read Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare.
What are your thoughts on Shakespeare?
