In this fresh and engaging study of Shakespeare and his work, writer and former Observer Literary editor Robert McCrum takes us on a personal exploration of the world’s most famous poet and playwright and asks: what is it that makes his work so enduring? Why do we consistently return to him, particularly in times of change and difficulty? Drawing on scholarly interpretation as well as personal experience and reflection, this is a fascinating and very timely portrait of Shakespeare and his relationship with ourselves.
