Beschreibung:

A re-examination of Shakespeare's will in light of the ecclesiastical and testamentary laws and customs of the time and the interests he was attempting to serve through the will.
Joyce Rogers sheds new light upon Shakespeare's last public words through her study of medieval and Renaissance ecclesiastical and testamentary laws and custom. Professor Rogers concludes that the will was correct, incontestable, and conventional. She also shows how it was designed to serve the best interests of the women and children in his family as well as the friends named therein.
