DEATH BY SHAKESPEARE Snakebites, Stabbings and Broken Hearts

by | Read by Nicky Diss

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This delightfully macabre audiobook details the reality and science behind the 74 different ways Shakespeare killed his characters. Narrator Nicky Diss's British accent adds authenticity, and her delivery shifts seamlessly between dramatic readings and comprehensive historical examinations. Her leisurely pace allows listeners to savor each morbid detail as the audiobook delves into the fascinating life Shakespeare led--according to the speculations of reputable historians--which would have allowed him ample knowledge of the human body and access to huge scientific advances. Shakespeare's time was saturated in death--from public executions to frequent plagues--all offering necessary context to his many elaborate methods. Perfect for Shakespeare fans, but also for fans of true or fictional crime. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
