Because I enjoyed it, I then obtained a copy of "The Late Mr. Shakespeare" by Robert Nye, which is a full and sometimes hysterical biography, and really goes into many controversial issues about the "Immortal Bard.

1993) The Complete Works A novel by Robert Nye. Writing her memoirs after her husband's death, Anne recalls in particular the week she went to London for the only time, summoned by Mr Shakespeare, and what happened to her in a strange bed above a fishmonger's shop. By the author of "Falstaff", winner of the Hawthornden and "Guardian" Prize. Genre: Literary Fiction. Similar books by other authors.

Shakespeare" is just that. Remember, this is fiction. And while we are not comparing Nye's work "to a summer's day," it is magical in its intent.

The Late Mr. Shakespeare proves how alive he was. A bawdy, entertaining, & eye-opening novel about the greatest writer of the Western world. From the pen of the writer whom Peter Ackroyd called "one of our best living novelists" comes a work that is rich, strange, and wonderful. Welcomed in Shakespeare's own land as the most original, exciting, and provocative novel about the playwright since Anthony Burgess's classic Nothing Like the Sun, Robert Nye's The Late Mr. Shakespeare is a literary event.

The dexterous Nye provides another wonderful Shakespearean biography (The Late Mr. Shakespeare, 1999), this time by giving Anne Hathaway her chance to tell all. And tell all she does, in short takes ( I don’t like long sentences ) and tiny chapters, filling up page by page the vellum-covered book that was a gift last Christmas from her daughter Susanna. Or, maybe, as Shakespeare does, too, since much of the fun of Nye’s marvelous book is discovering all those ways that the poesy-hating Anne was the real source of so much poesy ( ‘What’s in a name?’

The award-winning author of "The Late Mr. Shakespeare" portrays the Bard as never before seen-through the eyes of his wife, Anne Hathaway, who seven years after his death reminisces about her life with him, and offers insight to Will's secret lives.

I first heard part of this on BBC-Radio4 on the internet. So of course my interest was piqued. You can pick it up and read from any part and enjoy it.

The premise of this book about Shakespeare's wife is somewhat amusing, but it was too much soft porn that was coy--for my taste. (This from a woman who read all three 50 Shades books!)

Ah--a clever, clever book, indeed! Robert Nye's "Mrs. Shakespeare" is just that. In this very readable, witty, and enjoyable book, Nye's "central character" (Anne Hathaway) reveals to us the "real" William Shakespeare! Written some seven years after the Bard's death, the book draws heavily upon heretofore "unpublished" comments/thoughts/reactions by his widow. No matter.
Remember, this is fiction. And while we are not comparing Nye's work "to a summer's day," it is magical in its intent. Nye is quite the scholar, although that seems disguised as he flippantly carries us through Anne's memoirs ("the only happily married couple in all my husband's works are called Macbeth"). Of course, as "Shakespearean gospel," there will be the critics and non-believers. Again, no matter. It's fiction. So a little (well, all right, a lot) of leeway should be granted. Regardless of your devotion (or not) to Shakespeare, this take is still a good one to read. That's not to say it isn't intellectually challenging, and perhaps the more you know about Shakespeare, the more you are likely to catch all the allusions tossed--sometimes willy-nilly-at the reader!

This book was a little bit Too Much Information. I'm not exactly interested in Shakespeare's sex life.... I'm really wanting to give it 3 stars, except that OK, it could explain some things about Shakepeare and perhaps his writing.

I did enjoy reading from Mrs. Shakespeare's point of view, as Robert Nye presents it in his book. It was funny and clever, as well as a fresh breath of air. I could see why perhaps London was not to her liking... It was interesting to gain a different perspective on Shakepseare through her eyes and on daily and family life in Stratford.

An OK book that reads pretty quickly.

Why would anyone write, publish, or think anyone would enjoy this piece of nonsense?
This is supposed to be the memories of Mrs. Shakespeare penned 7 years after her husband's death as related by the Author Mr. Robert Nye. Chapter 13 was the most honest when the Author/Writer states, "This was not a good chapter, but then it was number thirteen". That comment explains the 13th chapter but what about the other 74? Seventy-five chapters diced amongst 216 pages account for whatever this is supposed to be. Another chapter of note is The Dunghill Chapter, and while evidently not deserving of a chapter there are more than enough references, comments, descriptions, and actions involving Seagull waste to merit its own section.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? No thanks! That bit of brilliant repartee between Mr. And Mrs. Shakespeare is what passes for humor in this collection of badly penned memories formatted in some retched tribute to poetry/sonnets/whatever, who cares!
There are probably more books written about Shakespeare than any other individual. Pick one, anyone but this. No amount of pompous claims that you must be a connoisseur or of the most elite of experts on this man's work justify this trash. This is not clever, insightful, or witty. It is nothing.
Hopefully the paper will be recycled into something useful.

This book is factually based and yet entertaining at the same time. Mrs. Shakespeare has a way of storytelling that the Bard himself would envy. Not only does she present facts about their life together, she presents them in a way that relates to all people. Who hasn't felt jealousy when their spouse puts work above them? Who isn't angry when they lose a child and have no one to talk to about it? This book is not so much a story of William Shakespeare, but a story of how his wife sees him. Robert Nye does an excellent job of letting us see the other side. We hear about Mr. Shakespeare from his wife, the woman who knows him best. The woman least likely to sugar coat it. We learn about his life in London, who the sonnets were really written for, and the mystery of the second best bed. This book is entertaining and intriguing. I recommend this book to people not only interested in Shakespeare's life, but also interested in thinking about their own life in a new way.

I wasn't sure about some of the humour - if that's what it was. I enjoyed the beginning more than the end. I got a little confused with the ending - was it to shock or humour me? i did enjoy the little "inside jokes", but that's about it.
Mrs. Shakespeare has nothing good to say about her husband, the great playwright and poet. However, no one knows what this women endured during their marriage. She is entitled to have a voice in history as well as her husband William Shakespear. I have no less respect for the "Bard's" talent (he was a legend and is still). No one is perfect and most brilliant people have their faults. It was quite interesting reading what she had to say. It helped me tremendously in understanding that era of time and the Bard himself. It also gave her an opportunity to release this bitterness from her inner soul.
