The Timetraveller's Guide to Shakespeare's London(2004)
A non fiction book by Joshua Doder
One of a series of books that will transport the reader to different eras of London's history. You will experience the sights (some pretty, most ugly), the smells (some fragrant, most offensive) and lives (some successful, most tragic) of its inhabitants through the ages. All contain quizzes and other interactive features, plus listings of relevant places to visit and things to do, and will prove both highly entertaining for their readers and invaluable for schools. Here are just some of the topics that this will cover: Just who was Shakespeare?; What drew him to London and what did he find here?; A pub crawl with John Falstaff, Shakespeare's fat felon; A day in the life of an Elizabethan actor; How to cope with Elizabethan heckling; Reviews of Shakespeare's play by Cecil Arduous, arts critic of The Great Fart; Which play did Queen Elizabeth ban?; Shakespeare's mates - Christopher Marlowe and Ben Jonson; Life at the Globe Theatre; How to be an Elizabethan celebrity William Shakespeare lived in one of the city's most exciting periods - during Queen Elizabeth I's reign. He is our greatest writer and this book recreates what life must have been like for him - from the low life of the taverns and the brothels, to the life of the court, all of which he experienced and all of which he put into his magnificent works.
