In one of my various moves while living in Albuquerque I lost one of my favorite books on Shakespeare. But, in an odd bout of coincidence, I found it on amazon earlier.
Shakespeare Unbound by Rene Weiss is one of the most comprehensive biographies on Shakespeare that I have read. I love his insight and it has helped me to understand different portions of the bard’s life to a greater extent. I seriously recommend it if you love Shakespeare (it’s only $8 on kindle). Check it out here.
