Who was Shakespeare, and why has his work remained so compelling to us for so many centuries? With conversational text, informative sidebars, and full-color photographs, The Young Person?s Guide to Shakespeare makes Shakespeare?s life and work accessible to young readers. Topics addressed include Shakespeare?s youth, marriage, and family life; the fascinating story of the Globe Theatre and Shakespeare?s life as a playwright and actor in London; an introduction to Shakespeare?s plays and the challenges of performing them; and Shakespeare?s enduring legacy--the enormous influence he still holds over the arts, culture, language, and society hundreds of years later.
