Overview

Many people know that William Shakespeare (1564–1616) was a playwright and poet, who wrote Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth and is widely considered the greatest dramatist of all time. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets; that he left behind six different versions of his signature; and that nobody knows what he did between 1585 and 1592. This book presents a playful guide to his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the playwright behind the plays.  La colección Biográfico ofrece una mirada completamente nueva de las vidas de grandes creadores y pensadores de la historia. Recoge 50 fechas, hechos, pensamientos, hábitos y éxitos que los definen y los plasma mediante vívidas instantáneas en forma de infografías. Es de sobra conocido que William Shakespeare (1564-1616) fue dramaturgo y poeta, que escribió Hamlet y El sueño de una noche de verano, y que es considerado el mejor autor de teatro de todos los tiempos. Lo que quizás no se sepa es que su método preferido para matar a los personajes era el apuñalamiento; que se le atribuye la creación de más de 2.000 palabras y expresiones en lengua inglesa, y que al morir era propietario de cinco casas y un pub. Biográfico Shakespeare abre el telón para presentarnos una lúdica guía de su vida, obra y legado, mediante una serie de hechos y cifras impactantes convertidos en atractivas imágenes que descubren al dramaturgo más allá de sus obras.  

Reviews

"The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic." —Armadillo magazine, on the English-language edition
