Shakespeare and the Origins of English

Neil Rhodes

What did Shakespeare learn at school? Did he study creative writing? This book addresses these and similar questions as the author shows where the modern subject of "English" came from and what part Shakespeare played in its formation. By looking at the origins of English we gain a new perspective on the subject as it is practiced today.
