Lyhyt elämäkerta
Stephen Greenblatt is the John Cogan University Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University as well as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for Nonfiction. He is the General Editor of The Norton Shakespeare and the General Editor of The Norton Anthology of English Literature. He divided his time between Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Vermont. [from The Swerve (2011)



Any book worth reading about Shakespeare will necessarily include a certain amount of fabrication, we know that little about the man. That’s one of the reasons people love both reading and writing about him; there are so many holes in his biography that it’s relatively simple for the Sweet Swan of Avon to become all things to all men. That said, I don’t know that I’ve ever read a non-fiction book with quite so much pure speculation as Greenblatt’s Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare. This finalist for the 2004 National Book Award is redeemed, however, though the author’s awareness of his own flight of fancy.

Would have made a good magazine article. The preface and chapters 8, 10 & 11 were the interesting parts for me; all the rest was a too academic review of 15th century Italian whatever. It was not what I expected from the title.

I was not previously aware of the content of Lucretius' poem but am always blown away by how the ancient Greeks, just by thinking about things, had everything figured out, right down to atoms & evolution.

I don't necessarily agree with all of Greenblatt's arguments, but he creates here a worthy portrait and discussion to add to the vast database of information and theories on Shakespeare's life and times.
