About the Author


William Shakespeare is perhaps the world's greatest literary figure, famed for his insights into the human condition. Records show that he married Anne Hathaway at the age of 18 and had three children with her. At some point he went to London and joined the theatrical profession, as an actor, playwright, poet and, latterly, theatre manager and impresario. He died in April 1616, aged 52. The body of work left by Shakespeare included 37 plays, four poems and a collection of sonnets. Dr Chris McNab has a PhD in Literature and has authored over 100 books on a variety of topics, from mythology to military history. Chris has also written extensively for major encyclopaedia series, magazines and newspapers. He lives in South Wales, UK.
