Mr. Ruhland is Reading “Will in the World” by Stephen Greenblatt

Mr. Ruhland is Reading

A young man from a small provincial town moves to London
in the late 1580s and, in a remarkably short time,
becomes the greatest playwright not of his age alone but
of all time. How is an achievement of this magnitude to be
explained? Stephen Greenblatt brings us down to earth to
see, hear, and feel how an acutely sensitive and talented boy,
surrounded by the rich tapestry of Elizabethan life, could have
become the world’s greatest playwright.
