About the book:

In the best tradition of sound-bites and pithily entertaining witticism, David and Ben Crystal's The Shakespeare Miscellany gathers together essential facts and fascinating insights about William Shakespeare--probably the most famous writer of all time--and the world in which he lived and 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. Some 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, and malapropisms...just for starters.
