A man who needs no introduction. But who got one from Ben Jonson in the First Folio, which revealed precisely nothing about the man himself. As Mark Twain memorably put it: 'So far as anybody knows and can prove, he never wrote a letter to anybody in his life. So far as any one knows, he received only one letter during his life.' We know next to nothing about Shakespeare the man. It is a gaping hole in the middle of English literature.
