Omtale How Shakespeare Changed Everything
Esquirecolumnist Stephen Marche gives an expansive and exciting look at WilliamShakespeare's pervasive influence on every aspect of modern culture-showing ushow we can find Shakespeare even where we least expect him. In the spirit ofAlain de Botton's How Proust Can Change Your Life,Marche reveals how Shakespeare's influence is everywhere-from politics topsychotherapy, broadway to botany, emo teenagers to outrageous baby names, even zoology (didyou know it's the Bard who is responsible for the starlings terrorizing NewYork City's Central Park?). Fans of literary trivia and readers of StephenGreenblatt's Will in the World and Bill Bryson's Shakespeare: TheWorld as Stage will be captivated by Marche's artful reading of how everyday can bring a fresh reading of the Immortal Bard of Avon.
