Shakespeare is a figure under perpetual analysis. His plays have been read, performed, reinterpreted and scrutinized endlessly, and historians pore over any clue as to who he really was.

Yet for all this examination, common descriptions of Shakespeare's life usually overlook the fact that he was a tax-evading, servant-owning businessman who exploited a famine to get rich.
