About this product
- DescriptionLittle is kwn of the wife of England's greatest playwright. In play after play Shakespeare presents the finding of a worthy wife as a triumphant deuement, yet scholars persist in believing that his own wife was resented and even hated by him. Here Germaine Greer strives to re-embed the story of their marriage in its social context and presents new hypotheses about the life of the farmer's daughter who married our greatest poet. This is a daring, insightful book that asks new questions, opens new fields of investigation and research, and rights the wrongs done to Ann Shakespeare.
