Book Review: 30 Great Myths about Shakespeare

Title: 30 Great Myths about Shakespeare
Authors: Laurie Maguire, Emma Smith
Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
Publication Date: January 22, 2013

Maguire and Smith present an interesting cross-section of Shakespearean history and scholarship. The overall tone is reader-friendly and accessible. The individual essays make it an easy read, although some of the topics are curious. And, like most books concerning Shakespeare's authorship, it won't likely convince anyone to switch their allegiance from their favorite alternate author candidate. Still a decent read for any Shakespeare enthusiast.
