    schema:reviewBody ""Little is known of the wife of England's greatest playwright; a great deal, none of it complimentary, has been assumed. The omission of her name from Shakespeare's will has been interpreted as evidence that she was nothing more than an unfortunate mistake from which Shakespeare did well to distance himself. Yet Shakespeare is above all the poet of marriage. In play after play Shakespeare presents the finding of a worthy wife as a triumphant denouement. Again and again in Shakespeare's plays constant wives redeem unjust and deluded husbands, but scholars persist in believing that Shakespeare's own wife was no help to him and even that he hated her." "In Shakespeare's Wife, Germaine Greer combines literary-historical technique with documentary evidence about life in Stratford, striving to re-embed the story of Shakespeare's marriage in its social context. Her book presents a new set of hypotheses about the life and career of the farmer's daughter who married our greatest poet."--Jacket." ;
