The Shakespeare Miscellany is an illuminating and endlessly absorbing treasury of observations about the world's greatest writer. David Crystal, author of the acclaimed The Stories of English, and actor Ben Crystal bring together little-known facts and intriguing insights into the plays and poems, as well as essential information about the man behind them and the dynamic Elizabethan theatrical world in which he worked. The Shakespeare Miscellany includes essential biographical facts (and fictions) that have been part of Shakespeariana for centuries, as well as a great deal of information that will be unfamiliar to most general readers, and some entirely new pieces of information. Topics include anachronisms, the lost plays, what Shakespeare would have studied at school, pronunciation, why the Globe burned down, the difference between a Folio and a Quarto, malapropisms... and that's just for starters.
