Summer Days in Shakespeare Land


Read by Lee Smalley

(2 stars; 1 reviews)

"Some delights of the ancient town of Stratford-upon-Avon and the country round about, together with a sketch of the life of Mr. William Shakespeare, in which many things both new and entertaining are to be found...and wherein certain fanatics are handsomely confuted." "Certain fanatics" refers to insistent doubters of Shakespeare's authorship of the great literary works attributed to him. The quoted statement appears before the Preface. The book, which was published in 1913, charmingly describes the area's structures, history, and lore. ~ Lee Smalley (8 hr 7 min)

confusing


(2 stars)

I managed to struggle to get half way through, Rather than visiting/discussing places from Shakespeare text ,the author haphazardly links flora/fauna/places as he comes across them. His Shakespeare Land covers a wider area than most opinion. We get odd bits of unrelevant history and legend. Quite well read but some mispronounced place names.
