Great Writers Inspire supporter, Dr Emma Smith, has co-authored a new book, 30 Great Myths about Shakespeare, with her University of Oxford colleague Professor Laurie Maguire. From the publisher’s website “Exploring and exploding 30 popular myths about the great playwright, this illuminating new book evaluates all the evidence to show how historical material—or its absence—can be interpreted and misinterpreted, and what this reveals about our own personal investment in the stories we tell”. The book is available from the Wiley-Blackwell website and all good booksellers.
