08 Jun Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer | Fred Kaplan
2020: Book #8
How did Shakespeare impact the writing of Lincoln?
He had favorite poets and poems.
Did his style find its way into the President’s pen and speech?
That’s the purpose of Fred Kaplan’s book, “Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer.”
For me, that describes this book.
It’s a necessary work for the serious Lincoln student.
But this book is not for the faint of heart.
I give it 2 stars out of a possible 5.
That’s book #8 for 2020.
44 more to go.
If you want to be a better leader…be a reader.
