William Shakespeare

A Compact Documentary Life

Revised Edition with a new Postscript

S. Schoenbaum

This compact edition of Schoenbaum's critically-acclaimed life of Shakespeare makes the resources of the world's greatest Shakespeare collections more accessible to all readers. It contains the full text--refined and amplified--of the original volume, and fifty documents reproduced in smaller format. Schoenbaum has also incorporated new material into his narrative, including an eyewitness account of a murder that may have occurred in New Place, the great house Shakespeare would eventually buy in 1597.
