Description Shakespeare has withdrawn from the theatre and lives in Stratford as a well-to-do country gentleman. But the material security he has achieved brings him no peace. The play evokes the image of an exhausted genius tormented with conscience about his cruelty to his family, the cruelty of the society he believes in and the worth of his own achievements.
