In Shakespeare’s Shadow
A truly sensational novel, written by a man born in Baia Mare, Walter Übelhart, captivates readers from the very first sentences. Through the chosen theme and the two-plane action, we are immersed in the corridors of time until 400 years ago, when a character from Baia Mare is revealed to us from the shadow of history, who for so long has preferred to remain discreet, Johannes Banfi Hunyades.
Graduate of Schola Rivulina, where he learned foreign languages, including English, our character makes a name for himself in select circles in London, and got to be close to the great William Shakespeare, to whom he not only suggested the themes for which he then became famous, but he even gave him texts, choosing to remain unknown.Assistant Professor PhD Mircea Ioan Farcas about "In Shakespeare's Shadow"
About the author
I was born on May 8, 1970 in Baia Mare, my parents being of German origin.
I was always grateful that I was born here and I love my hometown and Maramureş more than any other place in the world. I love the people, the nature and the animals. I'm enjoying the time I spend with my friends, reading, hiking. I am fascinated by the history and traditions of my native lands. I admire and seek to find in me and others goodness, tolerance, loyalty, sincerity and sense of humor.
