This was really cool! Thank.you for sharing your documentary, I learned a lot and look forward to listening to your podcast. It was fascinating. I know very little about Shakespeare, and I’m glad to come away with more knowledge. Thanks again! Michelle t
Thanks for your very interesting and in-depth analysis of the life of William Shakespeare, especially the new information about his dedication to his immediate family.
On the authorship question, however, do you think he actually wrote all of the plays or had help from others?
Henry Stanley, William Stanley, the Earl of Oxford, the Earl of Southampton and many others have been suggested as the man behind Shakespeare, even by scholars. What is your opinion? By the way, please don’t take this the wrong way but we pronounce Leicester as Lester not as L Ister in England.
I enjoyed your presentation, it had many pieces of new information and the importance of the players in the life of London and Court Society was something which people often overlook when we think of Shakespeare’s life. His family and his players had a few scraps with the law and a number of lucky escapes in what was essentially a police state. I wouldn’t have thought of them taking part in the coronation of King James. That was enlightening, thanks.
