    A brilliantly drawn detective story with entirely new insights into Shakespeare’s life In 1612, William Shakespeare gave evidence in a court case at Westminster and it is the only occasion on which his actual spoken words were recorded.

In Traces Remain, Charles Nicholl, the acclaimed author of The Reckoning, The Lodger: Shakespeare on Silver Street and Leonardo da Vinci: The Flights of the Mind, transforms these glimpses through time into comic and poignant vignettes, and curious, intriguing puzzles. From a mysterious painting found in a Hereford house to the

  • The Reckoning: The Murder of Christopher Marlowe Чарльз Николл

    In 1593, the brilliant and controversial young playwright Christopher Marlowe was stabbed to death in a Deptford lodging house.

Also providing an enthralling revelation of the extraordinary underworld of Elizabe

    ISBN: 978-0224043762
    Год издания: 1997
    Издательство: Jonathan Cape

    At the age of twenty-five, Arthur Rimbaud—the infamous author of A Season in Hell, the pioneer of modernism, the lover and destroyer of Verlaine, the "hoodlum poet" celebrated a century later by Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison—turned his back on poetry, France, and fame, for a life of wandering in East Africa. In this compelling biography, Charles Nicholl pieces together the shadowy story of Rimbaud's life as a trader, explorer, and gunrunner in Africa. Following his fascinating journey, Nicholl shows how Rimbaud lived out that mysterious pronouncement of his teenage years: "Je est un autre"—I is somebody else. "Rimbaud's fear of stasis…
