At college I accepted as certain truth the story about the "upstart Crow" in Greene's Groatsworth of Wit transformed into Ben Jonson's Sweet Swan of Avon--the young poet from Warwickshire who in the summer of 1587 goes off to London to seek his fortune, finds his way to the Globe Theatre and there joins a company of actors, writes a sequence of immortal plays, performs on occasion at the court of Elizabeth I, roisters in taverns with Will Kempe, returns to Stratford in 1610 at the age of forty-six, acquires a fine house and a coat of arms, writes The Tempest, and walks softly among willow trees until his death and transfiguration in 1616.
