Imagined accounts from the people Shakespeare would have known
Shakespeare's circle of relatives, friends, fellow-actors, collaborators and patrons comes to life as friends of The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust take on new voices and read creative accounts of their lives.
These accounts are based on contributions to the original book The Shakespeare Circle. Written by a distinguished team of Shakespeare scholars, this collection of biographical essays casts fresh light on Shakespeare and the time he lived in by examining the lives of those around him.
"Anyone who reads these collected biographical essays and sketches will come to know Shakespeare himself better." -Dame Margaret Drabble.
