I had expected to mostly skim this book, but I ended up devouring every word. (Okay, I did skim the chapters where Strackey was in Virginia because by then I was anxious to read about his return to England and about The Tempest.) I wish I had this book when I was a college freshman because there are so many starting places for papers for history, literature, sociology. The bibliography and Woodward's notes are extensive and specific. I can also see its value for Speech 101; I always found selecting a topic for the speech was the hardest part of each assignment.
A truly fascinating story behind the play as well as a detailed description of travel conditions in the 17th century.
